Welcome to the IEEE Summit on Technology for Health: Transforming Healthcare and Wellbeing!

This event will bring together policymakers, leaders in the healthcare, medical technology and electronics industries, as well as expert patients, in order to facilitate a dialogue on connected technology-enabled healthcare (e.g. smart / bio-sensing wearables, implantable technologies, etc.).
Three panel discussions will approach the area of technology-enabled healthcare from different perspectives, focusing on the technological advances and the transformative role they play, the challenges around the resulting data deluge and how to protect and manage personal data, and the need for a paradigm shift in how health and well-being is (self) managed at the human level to accommodate and derive benefits from these technological changes.
In addition, two high-level keynote speakers will deliver addresses that capture the key issues at stake in the current debate about innovation in technology-enabled healthcare, from the policymaker and technology/industry perspective.
Overall, the Summit will provide a platform for discussion on the opportunities and challenges presented by technological advances in healthcare, and will stimulate debate on how best to overcome the challenges while fully exploiting the opportunities.
