Digital Innovation in Healthcare Conference 2017

Venue: Edinburgh International Conference Centre

The beautiful city of Edinburgh, Scotland will be the scene of the 13th PhUSE Annual Conference. The theme for the 2017 Conference is “Digital Innovation in Healthcare”.

The pharmaceutical industry is known to adapt slowly to anything new. The standards, systems, or processes don’t change easily. The rest of the world however, does. Even the healthcare industry changes and changes fast.

Previous conferences have touched on related topics with themes around data transparency, data science, and the fast track to approval. The topic of conversation in Edinburgh takes a journey through mobile communication, the cloud, and the Internet of Things. Technology that the industry hasn't had to deal with before, hooked up to smart devices and sensors. Technology that generates massive amounts of data that, in turn, require advanced analytics. And that can provide solutions to challenges that cannot begin to be thought of yet.

This time around, change will have to come fast. That requires that answers are given to questions quickly. That’s what will be happening in Edinburgh. Just to name a few. Where exactly is this digital innovation? What is big data in healthcare, and where is it? How to deal with all this data? How does new technology affect work, and how to make it work for the industry?

PhUSE will continue with presentations as the backbone of the Conference. Interactive sessions and Hands-on Workshops will remain the platform for open discussion on current subjects. Of course PhUSE will follow the trend of change and has seized opportunities for improvement by adjusting the Conference streams to the needs of its audience. And again, the most inspiring keynote speakers will be invited.
