Join us at this panel discussion and discover how innovative technologies can advance the adoption of AI in our healthcare systems.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has emerged as a promising enabler in revolutionising healthcare, offering heightened efficiency in clinical operations and disease detection. Despite its potential, hurdles like such as data scarcity, privacy concerns, rigorous regulations, and the perceived erosion of the vital clinician-patient bond have restrained its full integration. In this session, we delve into the innovative technologies that may offer solutions to the advancement of a more widespread adoption of AI within the healthcare landscape
