Arctic Light E-Health Conference 2017

ALEC 2017






The Digital Transformation of Healthcare

Why does it matter

First off, let’s Clarify what we mean when talk about ‘the Digital Transformation of Healthcare’. Digital Transformation is the whole scale change to the foundational components of healthcare: from its operating model to the infrastructure, to the ‘services’ we provide, to whom we provide them to. The Digital Transformation touches every function of healthcare; from workforce training, HR, finance, reimbursement and evaluation models, through to operations, technology, communication and business development.

  • Catch up on what’s driving the digital transformation
  • Understand the challenges
  • Learn what it takes it to get the transformation going
  • Understand the impact of digital healthcare
  • Innovate today and get ready for the transformation ahead

Health Equity in the Digital Age

Why does it matter

We believe everyone deserves a fair chance to lead a healthy life, that No one should be denied a chance to lead a healthy life because of socio-economic status, demographic factors or where they are from.

  • Understand the challenges of creating health equity
  • The promise of technology to ‘design’ health
