Rising costs, changing demographics and growing consumer expectations are changing healthcare. Providers and payers are seeking better quality care and improved outcomes whilst striving for much more efficient models of delivery.
These pressures for transformation are changing the status of IT in healthcare as it facilitates an information revolution in healthcare. Increasingly, ICT is being used more collaboratively to support and drive substantial cultural and strategic change and provide the infrastructure, processes and tools to support this.
This African Innovator Roundtable on Innovation in Healthcare has been developed to provide critical input for stakeholders in healthcare, providing objective, timely, evaluation of the different healthcare challenges and applications and solutions for tackling them.
