Event description

Description

The much anticipated Topol Review states that technology offers the potential to reshape health and care, empowering people who are willing and able to become more actively engaged in their health. However, the review also recognises that it is critically important that digital healthcare technologies do not exacerbate inequalities in healthcare. The clear and present impact of health inequality is evidenced in a seminal publication by the NHSA: their 2018 report on UK geographical health inequalities has been critical in promoting focus on this important conversation as governments, health providers and citizens begin to enter new models of care.

In response to both of these reports, the next Manchester One HealthTech event will partner with Manchester Futurists to deep dive into AI and digital health and how these new technologies may support or potentially exacerbate inequality, inclusion and parity in health and social care. We will examine some of the key recommendations from the Topol Review and explore how we can create an environment where everyone, including patients, citizens and staff, feels empowered and involved in the design of a digital healthcare system which actively improves equality and inclusion.”

Refreshments (kndly provided by our hosts) and chats from 6.30 for prompt 7pm start.

Come and join us for an informal and informative evening with a great community in the heart of Manchester: Autotrader UK, First Street.

Cheers,

OneHealthTech Manchester and Manchester Futurists
