Why This Summit?
Access to facilities and medication, lack of skills and chronic disease care continue to place demands on existing healthcare resources in Africa, while economic turbulence propels governments to scrutinize healthcare budgets more closely.
Equally importantly, a growing expectation on safety, access and enhanced patient experience from the consumer space urges healthcare services to be further integrated and ubiquitous.
The African Innovator Healthcare Innovation Summit is a regional conference that examines the value of technology in improving healthcare provision and the efficiencies it brings to healthcare systems.
Confirmed sponsors for this event include T-Systems, Fortinet, Veeam, Checkpoint Software, Epson among others.
