The digitalisation of the healthcare sector has increased rapidly during the last years, driven by new technology and solutions, and accelerated further during the Covid-19 pandemic. Even though the development has gone quick, the digitalisation of healthcare still has a lot of untapped potentials. By gathering some of the brightest minds in the field, Business Sweden invites you to a half-day seminar to learn more about the future of connected health. We will hear from actors from both the private and public sectors as they explore what lies ahead, what the key issues are, and how they can be solved with the help of new technology.
