Event Description

Innovation Briefing: The Use of AI and Blockchain in Connected Medical Devices
7 February 2019
Conference: 9:3am–6pm
Followed by networking drinks reception

In an increasingly interconnected world, the analysis and secure handling of healthcare data is an essential component of the path ahead.

More than 300 million wearable devices were sold last year alone and these, along with many other clinical as well as consumer devices, are now being used to capture healthcare data. Mobile phones, which are increasingly seen as the best way to connect patients with their healthcare providers, are looking likely to become the de facto patient-centric tool for organising healthcare in the years to come.

In February 2019, we are bringing together an international line up of speakers from major corporations, with experts from hospitals and health services in several countries, SMEs with novel approaches, and major players in the AI and Blockchain arenas for a day of learning and discussion about this crucial topic.

12:15pm – 1pm Talk with Q&A: Challenges in sharing information across medical IoT
Healthcare is transforming from cure to prevention and an important part of this transformation will be Internet of things (IoT) solutions that collect data on and near the individual. If the enabling AI is to be useful, there must be a way to share data between stakeholders with the consent from the individual whose data it is. Parallels are easy to find in the financial sector when sharing account information or making payments. This presentation will elaborate an innovative approach for addressing these challenges.
Anders Strömberg, Senior Business Manager at Sony

3:15pm – 3:30pm Coffee break
3:30pm – 4:15pm Talk with Q&A: Life sciences companies as superb candidates for the adoption of blockchain technology
Life Sciences companies operate with overwhelming amounts of data — data which must be shared yet secure, data that is digitised now more than ever, data that belongs to the increasingly empowered patient. By providing faster access to this trusted data, as well as facilitating better collaboration and increased transparency, blockchain can significantly improve and personalise the patient experience. The technology can also help reduce counterfeit medicines, promote more effective research and development, and drive new or optimised business models.
Andrew Fried, Global Life Sciences Industry Leader at IBM and Stefano Bensi, Director, Watson Internet of Things, World Wide Sales at IBM
Scaling up
4:15pm – 5pm Panel: Getting to scale
Too many small projects exist in individual hospitals, what we need now is a way to scale these innovations to make them truly valubale to the whole community. The roles of technologists, healthcare providers and other stakeholders will be discussed.
