London Tech Week event roundup: The role of future technologies in supporting the delivery of high-quality care

On 13 June, techUK and NVIDIA hosted a webinar exploring the role of future technologies in supporting the delivery of high-quality care.

Run in collaboration with London Tech Week 2022, this was the first of fifteen free fringe events techUK has held for LTW from 13-17 June. These include roundtables, networking sessions and webinars focused on foreign direct investment, trade, tech policy, net zero, digital skills, levelling up, quantum, AI, ethics, and much more.

The panellists were:

  • John Harding, Regional Director for UK&I Enterprise, NVIDIA – Bringing AI to the point of care
  • Declan Hadley, Healthcare Development Lead, Cisco – Smart Hospitals Research and Innovation Network
  • Lalit Suryawanshi, CTO and Co-Founder, Itecho Health – Digital health applications in long-term conditions
  • Dr Nadine Hachach-Haram, Consultant Plastic Surgeon and Director of Clinical Innovation and Strategic Partnerships, Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust – Digitising healthcare and making it accessible to all

Discussion topics included the roles of patients and providers and the shift to patient-led care, complexity in AI, infrastructure and interoperability challenges, and avenues to technology adoption and ownership.

Throughout short speaker presentations and a more substantial Q&A session, the panel’s outlook for the sector was hopeful, provided the government drives standards adoption and the post-Covid 19 recovery, data is trusted and not siloed, digital health literacy is improved, and biases, security threats and structural issues are addressed.
