Concurrent Panel Session - Panel B: Virtual Health: Using Technologies to Support the Delivery of Health Services

How do we exploit today’s various forms of technologies to deliver health services? What are important issues related to clinical delivery of services that are important? What are ways that Ministry of Health and Health Authorities are supporting virtual health delivery (e.g. MOH Digital Health Strategy, PHSA approach to virtual health)? What are ways forward to support virtual health – public model versus private models (e.g. Medeo before, Babylon now)? I think this would be an important session that would immediately impact our health system, engage a wide audience and stakeholders, and complement the future delivery of personalized medicine.

Instead we are asking about what you expect your GP or pharmacists to know when you take in your BRCA result, or your 23andme?
