Innovation and disruptive technologies are moving forward at pace, which is making a real impact on the world as we know it. But healthcare systems, especially in the UK, are notoriously slow in adopting and implementing innovations.

There is a real need to do things differently in the healthcare sector. Money needs to be used more effectively to create head room for innovations which deliver value in clinical outcomes and improve patient experience. Embracing change is becoming urgent as demand is already out stripping supply.

Events like Wired Health are an important opportunity to be inspired by innovations which have the promise to revolutionise healthcare and to be amazed by disruptive trends which are changing the rules about how we manage our wellness. The below download is intended to give people who weren’t able to make the event a glimpse into some of the innovations which were showcased during the day.

For me, this year’s Wired Health focused on how some of the promising innovations of the recent past are now making a direct impact in the scientific and healthcare world. The event featured ideas which are no longer brand new, but which are building a track record of having an impact and are being implemented.

Wired Health was also an opportunity for me to reflect on how we, at MHP Communications, are supporting organisations who want to operate in this complex, highly regulated and evolving sector.

We understand where traditional healthcare companies are coming under threat from new types of competition and can advise them on how to evolve their business model so that they don’t get left behind. And we know the barriers that technology companies face when talking to, engaging with, and driving adoption of an innovation in the healthcare system.
