The health sector is one of the last industries to be digitised, but technology and industry changes mean the sector is on the cusp of rapid digitisation in Australia and globally. However, the health sector is highly complex and patient safety is paramount, which means that it may be more difficult to build sustainable disruptive technologies in healthcare. Where are the opportunities for healthcare IT to innovate and make a genuine difference in the health sector?
Join us on Tuesday 15 November as we hear from the 2015 Victorian Pearcey Entrepreneur Award Winner Alison Hardacre, as she takes us on her entrepreneurial journey and discusses where there are genuine opportunities in the global healthcare for technology innovation.
|Date:||Tuesday 15 November, 2016|
|Time:||5:45pm registration for a 6:00pm start|
|Venue: ||Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre (MCEC), South Wharf|
