Accelerating progress towards a smarter healthcare system

This is an exciting time to be in healthcare. Digital health solutions are driving improvements in service delivery, clinical outcomes and patient experience. From disease prevention and diagnostics to treatment monitoring, advances in technology are transforming health systems and improving patient outcomes. And, while Ireland may be behind the curve when it comes to digital health, we are catching up fast.

The Business Post’s Smart Health Summit is where health and care leaders meet to explore smarter health technology tools and solutions that enhance patient outcomes and productivity. The event attracts hundreds of senior healthcare professionals from around Ireland to hear cutting-edge case studies, inspiring insights from leaders at the frontline of digital healthcare transformation, engage in open and pragmatic discussions about the challenges, failures and real-life successes of navigating digital transformation in healthcare today.

The Business Post’s 2024 Smart Health Summit, an annual 1-day event that brings together healthcare leaders to connect and collaborate for a better healthcare service.

STREAM 1: How digital is enabling integrated care

Healthcare is facing challenges in both recruiting into the sector and equipping the staff it does have with the digital skills they need:

  • What are the skills gaps and what does good look like?

Regulation and reimbursement are key to the adoption and implementation of digital health technologies. In addition, the technologies must be equitable and easy to adopt by the workforce and patients – important challenges to adoption include a change of culture, digital literacy, and incentives. Many countries have been slow to update legislation and guidance for this relatively new field in healthcare and struggled with the challenges: data security and privacy, interoperability.
