With the healthcare industry continuing to experience an explosion of innovative technologies, regulatory bodies and associations are going to have a greater role to play in the speed in which digital health is truly realized. Combined with patient representatives having greater input into the formats and delivery of healthcare, the industry is still at a crucial turning point as wider market acceptance and international opportunities for digital devices hang in the balance. Following the success of the inaugural FT Digital Health Summit USA, the event returns this year to once again target the most pressing challenges and opportunities within the industry. Expanding the expert speaker roster to include greater patient representation, the agenda will look at how the wider consumer market is accepting digital health technologies as well as their potential in driving more proactive healthcare.
