Healthcare Conference – 19th May 2022
Human lifespan has been increasing over the years, thanks to the advancements in lifestyle and healthcare technology. Yet, this quantity of life years not always has translated into its quality. According to some estimates, humanity could add as many as 45 billion extra years of higher-quality life — up to six years per person. So, this daunting task would require reimagining how we view healthcare and solutions that could be sustainably scaled to create global impact while having resource constraints. Some of those solutions may lie in digital technology as it is, by its nature, flexible, scalable, and drives efficiency along the value chain.
And together with renowned Health AI\BigData experts, Digital Diagnostics/Therapeutics leaders and founders from different sectors including women’s health, oncology and many others, we will further our conversation on how technology can help us address some of the most burning and tangible gaps in healthcare today, improve outcomes and increase the quality of our lives.
The event is organized in partnership with a FemTech community and start-up accelerator Tech4Eva that offers a 9 month FemTech start-up acceleration program for companies developing innovative solutions to improve technologies relating to women’s health.
