With evident success over the years, the 4th edition of the Healthcare Innovation Summit Africa (HISA2018) – slated for 17 & 18 October 2018 in Johannesburg – promises to be the biggest to date; bringing together industry leaders and influencers including heads of technology, policy makers, technology solution providers, academics, health-tech entrepreneurs, medical professionals as well as key stakeholders from public and private hospitals.

For the past three years, healthcare and technology professionals have gathered at this one-of-a-kind event to engage in discussions aimed at finding innovative solutions to Africa’s many healthcare challenges.

With “Paving the road to Sustainable Smart Healthcare” as the running theme for the summit, HISA 2018 will cover emerging technology trends in healthcare such as AI, IoT and wearables, electronic health records, medical practice management solutions, healthcare data security and privacy, telemedicine, predictive analytics and much more. It will also look at the impact that these technologies have on hospital operations and healthcare delivery.

This year’s event will feature influential speakers, many of whom have implemented game-changing tech solutions within their healthcare organisations. It is no surprise that major tech and healthcare brands, as well as government departments, have thrown their weight behind this summit.
