Abstracts submission

Accessible health systems that provide timely, affordable, high-quality care are a cohesive, binding force. The future promises huge benefits but the intervening journey may test our political, economic and social fabric to their limits. Amid such upheaval, can our health systems meet both our current needs but future demands?

Population ageing

How will changes in population transform the world’s ability to meet the challenges that lie ahead for society and our healthcare services?

Digital health

A serial healthcare entrepreneur with a PhD in Engineering Physics, Dr Ali Parsa believes his tech start-up, Babylon, can do for healthcare what Google did for information.

Critical care

This presentation explores futuristic intensive care unit (ICU) design with a view to how it may look in 2050. It focuses on various approaches to futuristic innovations and looks at new technologies that are seemingly way beyond today’s capabilities. These technologies will include a mixture of iterative improvements, as well as marked transformative changes.
