Extract from the homepage of the event:
With NHS budgets falling and demographic pressures on services increasing, the areas of eHealth, mHealth, personalised medicine and remote diagnostics are attracting increasing interest as solutions that could potentially transform the delivery of healthcare whilst keeping budgets in balance, Beyond Digital Health Manchester 2011 will take a look at these technologies from the perspective of businesses, investors, policy makers and service deliverers, emphasising the potential for collaboration between businesses and researchers and across sectors. Industry players and innovative SMEs will demonstrate their work, and relate their view of opportunities in this market. Universities and public bodies such as the Technology Strategy Board will highlight sources of funding for further research and development.
The event furthers MIDAS' work in strengthening the links between ICT and life sciences, both sectors in which Manchester has world class expertise. Bringing together cluster organisations Bionow and Manchester Digital, a series of internationally renowned speakers from within the Manchester business and science community will highlight areas of excellence of the North West and point out the potential for new investment. Beyond Digital Health Manchester 2011 is supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), allowing delegates to attend free of charge to benefit from a range of advice and service offers. The conference is a must-attend for businesses looking to grow and enhance their proposition in the ICT and Biomedical communities.
