About the 2018 theme

Technological advancements and associated research breakthroughs are revolutionising the way healthcare is delivered. From the adoption of electronic medical records and telehealth services, to advances in genomics, bio-medical engineering, 3D printing and other technology, modern healthcare is rapidly evolving.

But what impact will these changes have on the patient experience and how do healthcare professionals manage patient relationships in the face of a healthcare system which is becoming increasingly technically driven?

And how will healthcare systems and professionals manage the expectations of a consumer base who are becoming increasingly more engaged with their own healthcare delivery through consumer-operated healthcare applications and technology?

Learn, network and engage with global experts, colleagues, staff and industry representatives at the 58th PAH Health Symposium.
