Sorry, this event has now ended.
Business Growth Hub are holding the Future of Healthcare event that will bring together clinical leaders, academics, SMEs and global players to find collaborative solutions which can be implemented into the health system, focusing on the lives of people across GM affected by or at risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
GM has the UK's highest rate of premature death from cardiovascular disease with diabetes being a major contributor. There are a number of system wide initiatives working to tackle the problem, this programme has been designed to take a whole system approach to supporting clinical commissioning groups. despite these efforts though, new solutions are need.
Discussions at the event will centre on identifying risk-factors in populations and improving diagnostic techniques to see underlying biological processes in the body. They will also discuss wearable technologies and remote monitoring supporting personalised medicine and self-management.
