Digital Health

The term “digital health” has been portrayed as a key element to success in healthcare. The aims are diverse and far-reaching as it looks towards preventing disease, managing chronic conditions, lowering costs, rural outreach, personalized medicine – with the list never ending. With multiple goals in mind, organizations are spearheading various initiatives towards the implementation of digital health and digital innovations.

With these in mind, we are excited to explore real life case studies of digital health being used to enhance healthcare delivery in our day to day lives. With digital health being a focus of innovation, there is a lot of potential for its uses to be developed to strengthen health care delivery, both for mature and low resource settings. This conference will cover the work that is being done in the Southern African region, as well as ways to improve digital health maturity.
