In Pursuit of Clinical Effectiveness

As our theme, we are returning to the bewildering advances that are occurring in health technology, across a wide spectrum from personalised cancer medicine to AI in diagnostic imaging. We are all facing not only a mountain of cost, but unwelcome dilemmas about which products and therapies represent value for money, and can be afforded. At the same time we need to continue to bear down on the administrative cost of delivering that cover. Our speakers some of whom are listed below, whether they are distinguished medics, from research institutes, insurance businesses or technology start ups, will engage with these issues, in order to stimulate our members to step up their search for innovative solutions.
