Medtalk: Technology innovation in health

One of the highlights of ‘Changing the face of medicine’ will be a talk on 31 October on how technologies are changing the health industry globally from Callaghan Innovation’s Chief Technology Officer Dr Chris Hartshorn and Fisher & Paykel Healthcare’s General Manager Corporate, Marcus Driller. 

Chris will discuss how emerging technologies are blurring the lines between healthcare and wellbeing. What will the future of healthcare look like and how will we be receiving care? Chris knows better than almost anyone what the future holds and what plans businesses are making to grow, having advised many of the world's leading companies - including Samsung, PepsiCo, BMW and IBM.

Fisher & Paykel Healthcare’s success is partly due to their huge focus on patient-centric technologies. Marcus will talk about how New Zealand’s largest medical device company innovates to create their world-leading products.
