Delivering the best of Digital Health
De Montfort University has established a new Digital Health and Care Unit within the school of Health and Life Sciences to address many of the frustrations experienced by patients, clinicians and digital health companies at the pace of access to, and thus benefit from, emerging technologies.
Starting in 2018 the Unit set out to establish partnerships with local clinicians and digital health companies to answer real clinical and social needs with technologies that are ready for use in the UK, but not deployed.
This partnership is bearing fruit for patients, clinicians, digital health companies and the university and the team will share some early results. They will share with you their approach and encourage clinicians, digital health companies and patients to get involved and derive real benefit from these technologies.

Digital Continuous Care – Wearable Technology that Healthcare Can Capitalize On
Utilization of new technology disrupts the paradigm of many ecosystems and is often resisted in Healthcare. However, when a natural evolution of technology is incorporated into an existing organization, the innovations outpace the disruptive effects while encouraging widespread acclimation. Digital Continuous Care incorporates modern wearable medical technologies and enables reliable patient continuous supervision as a natural evolution of medical monitoring. The combination of AI’s predictive power with the convenience of comfortable wearable medical devices can be fine-tuned with existing healthcare ecosystems. Harnessing Digital Continuous Care will improve patient life style, quality of care, while reducing risk and overall costs.

Will Blockchain Really Transform Healthcare?
Following the rise (and fall) of Bitcoin, there is a lot of hype around Blockchain technology and it’s potential to improve efficiency whilst protecting privacy. Within the healthcare sector in particular, where the need for cost-management and transformation is so great, is it feasible to leapfrog electronic health records and migrate straight to a Blockchain solution? This session bring together a panel of experts, across provider, payer, physician and patient perspectives, to highlight the critical challenges facing healthcare systems globally and illustrate how solutions like blockchain can be brought to bear.
