Great opportunities exist for improving healthcare through innovations such as consumer portals, mobile applications, wearable devices and analytics.

However, while such innovations offer great promise, arguably healthcare innovation has evolved slowly in comparison with other sectors. The healthcare industry is also subject to strict rules and regulations affecting models of care and business ownership. Will New Zealand's healthcare regulation be able to keep up with innovative technology, or will technological disruption find its own way through while still protecting patients?

Appearing courtesy of ITP and hosted by Buddle Findlay, Dr Jane Allison will share her insights on the trends and opportunities for improving health care through wearables, consumer portals and mobile applications and some of the challenges the health sector faces or may face in response to these innovations.
