Keynote Address

There are a wide range of emerging technologies that will impact the healthcare industry over the coming years - including many cutting-edge innovations that you’ve likely never heard of that are available today.

We’re living in a really exciting period when it comes to how the combination of software and devices are going to impact healthcare – not to mention cutting edge research in the area of artificial intelligence, quantum computing, robotics, 3D printing, brain machine interfaces, nanotech, stem cells, genomics and precision medicine.

In this speech, "Healthcare Technologies of Tomorrow" - Shara shares exciting advances in MedTech, as well as a mix of how emerging technologies are already being used, and where we’re headed in the future, along with lots of ideas on what healthcare facility managers are likely to see in the future due to demand from medical professionals – and to use for competitive advantage for their facilities.

Shara has been tracking many of these healthcare advances over an extended period, and as part of this speech she talks about the innovation and commercialisation process journey of many healthcare devices and services – in many cases going from  original research concept to the latest news as of April-May 2022.
