Join us at this roundtable discussion where we will be discussing how traditional methods and new technology is currently colliding and what effects it will have on our health and care.

Research has shown that it currently takes on average over a decade and over £1billion to develop a new drug. However, a fresh approach, made possible by groundbreaking developments in genomics and digital technology, could significantly reduce the time it takes to develop new medicine, devices and diagnostics.

Relentlessly increasing amounts of start ups are being formed working within the realms of health tech making wearables, gathering big data, analytics, fitness trackers, apps and telemedicine. However, with billions of pounds and dollars of investment and the flood of health-related data we have now, how can this be of use for both patients and doctors? How can their quality be measured? And how can they be brought to the market, and what affects will it have on out current institutions/ NHS?
