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.
Who should attend?
The conference will assemble participants including CXOs, Department Heads and Senior Management from: Government, Public and private hospitals, CIOs and IT Managers in healthcare, Health-Tech Entrepreneurs and startups, Clinics, Technology solution providers and Academics. Decision makers and professionals in the healthcare and technology fields are welcome to join the conference to network and exchange strategies with their peers.
Key topics to be discussed at the event:
- Connectivity to Drive Better Healthcare Outcomes
