If you are in the business of healthcare, then this invitation is to you. We cannot continue to ‘do’ healthcare using traditional models and thinking. We know there is a lot of good work happening to change the way health is managed. Advanced use of data, innovation and consumer led approaches are dominating the agenda. HIC seeks to bring the healthcare sector together to highlight the power of digital health innovation and health informatics and to observe case studies and good work that is occurring across the sector. We know healthcare demands innovation and new ways of thinking, new models of care that are centred on the individual empowered by digital technologies.
