AMS Phoenix 2017 Invitational Conference
In this age of disruption what does the future of healthcare look like? Big Data and Artificial Intelligence threaten to revolutionize the system as we know it. What does that mean for healthcare professionals? More importantly what does it mean for the patient? Thank you for attending The AMS Phoenix 2017 Invitational Conference where we focused on– The Impact of Technology on the Delivery of Compassionate Patient-Centred Care.
Dr. Bertalan Meskó, The Medical Futurist, was our Keynote Speaker and also hosted an interactive workshop. A geek physician with a PhD in genomics and Amazon Top 100 author, he envisions the impact of digital health technologies on the future of healthcare. With 500+ presentations under his belt, including courses at Harvard, Stanford and Yale Universities, Singularity University, and a Canadian Senate Committee Hearing on Social Affairs, Science and Technology, he is one of the top voices globally in healthcare technology.
