How Intelligent Automation is changing healthcare

How Cloud enables the innovation needed to deliver better patient-centric care
A new wave of innovation for Irish healthcare has taken off and one of the things that has made this possible is the adoption of cloud computing. Andrew and Mark will discuss why leading healthcare organisations in Ireland and further afield are choosing cloud to drive this innovation. Using case studies, they will review what this means for agility, scale, and security in the sector and more importantly how this benefits the patients and healthcare professionals on the front-line.

Removing barriers to innovation and overcoming the commercial challenges
The future of innovation post Covid-19 – Commercial challenges facing Irish industry
Innovation is a key component of sustainable, accessible and equitable healthcare. The COVID-19 crisis demonstrated how Irish Health Tech companies supported by Enterprise Ireland are global leaders in innovation. A 2020 OECD report ranks Ireland among the top countries in the world for producing innovative solutions to the current Covid-19 crisis. As companies continue to adapt, innovate and create new healthcare solutions, how can we address some of the existing commercial barriers and streamline the process of bringing innovative products and services to market rapidly?
