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.
Tuesday’s Digital Health Day examined current trends in the sector and a range of speakers discussed how Jersey was the ideal testbed to trial new products.
