Jersey TechWeek 2018 - Digital Health Day

This year the Island of Jersey plays host to a full week of exciting and innovative tech events running from 13th to 19th October 2018 to showcase and celebrate the best of tech whilst providing networking, learning, business and social opportunities.

Radisson Blu Hotel

Governments across the globe have struggled to find ways to introduce tech to deliver better, safer care to patients; it’s not just about ‘computerising’ what we have, it’s about making the most of data to improve services and the way in which citizens interact with them.

At our Digital Health Day we will hear views on ‘health and care digitisation’ on both a national and local scale, and how some of the ‘bleeding edge’ technologies such as VR, AR and AI are solving real-world problems.

Join this lively debate and hear how Jersey could be a worldwide leader in digital health.
