Harnessing the potential of digital surgery: challenges and opportunities
The healthcare industry is responsible for generating over 30% of the world’s data volume and, with an expected compound annual growth rate of 36% by 2025, effective management and analysis of this massive amount of data is crucial.
The MedTech Industry is poised to move from a history of analogue decisions based on personal experience to a digital revolution that could forever change care. But, with this opportunity comes a host of concerns and challenges that are stifling progress. During this year’s Industry Forum we will have the opportunity to engage subject experts in a lively discussion about the challenges and opportunities of digital surgery by exploring questions such as:
- Who owns the data?
- How could industry and government work together to enable effective data sharing?
- How could decision making change as a result of access to more/better data?
- How do we tackle privacy and patient acceptance/confidentiality/empowerment?
- Who pays for any infrastructure/development needed (trusts, surgeons, patients, industry, all)?
