Plenary 1 - EMERGING SOLUTIONS
Technology and oncology
Technology and innovation continues to rapidly change our working and social lives. The health care sector has historically been lagging in adoption of innovation due to safety and privacy concerns. However, compelling lifesaving innovation has reached the shores of healthcare with global technology companies now making major investments in healthcare.
This plenary explores both the micro in terms of gene technology as well as the macro health system and its interaction with artificial intelligence, apps and wearable technology. The plenary will provide an insight into costs of this early phase technology and provides essential background to ethical questions of how society can afford these advances.
