The Healthcare Management Conference is brought to you in association with IPAF.

Digital Technology has the potential to affect every aspect of business, Healthcare, private life, enabling smarter choices, allowing people to spend more time on tasks they deem valuable, and often fundamentally transforming the way value is created.

What will the 3rd wave of IT adoption look like for healthcare?

How is technology shaping the healthcare sector and what is on the horizon?

It will lead to more patient engagement, more patient involvement in their own healthcare. We will explore the IT development internationally and review its impact. It is reality for SA to be IT enabled.

RuDASA believes that the long term solution for rural health care in South Africa is adequate and appropriate training of South Africans to meet the needs for health care professionals in underserved rural areas. We are involved in a number of initiatives to lobby for and address these needs. (See elsewhere on this site, including scholarship schemes and electives programmes). We also support the principle of the Melbourne Manifesto with respect to the need for a Code to govern the International Recruitment of Health Care Professionals. Within this context, it is obvious that we in South Africa will remain reliant on the services of foreign qualified doctors to staff our rural health services for many years to come.
