Technology is transforming the way that our health services are delivered. Expected trends in healthtech for 2017 include developments in the areas of mental health, health monitoring, management and control, wearable technology and the virtual/remote delivery of healthcare services. Many of these developments collect vast amounts of health care data. Harnessing the power of data mining and artificial intelligence will create yet more opportunities for disruptive technology. With these opportunities come challenges, particularly in the areas of data privacy and cyber security. Misuse of information is a significant risk and the cost of a breach goes beyond financial loss, impacting brand, reputation and trust.

Connecting with medical experts worldwide
1 February 2017 marked our first Healthtech forum for the independent health sector. The forum combined insight and experience from the sector and the NHS. Hotly debated themes included the increasing scrutiny on the collection and use of healthcare data as a result of the forthcoming GDPR, the regulatory climate across jurisdictions and the need for contracting models to evolve to keep pace with technological innovation.
