How will healthcare be provided in over 10+ years? What part will technology play in the transformations that will occur through to the year 2030?


This event will focus on models of care, and how they will change and be delivered. The presentations will have a clinical and patient outcome focus whilst highlighting how technology will be developed and used to support these outcomes.

Attendee comments about 2017 Emerging Tech in Health Symposium

The day was an insightful look at what is happening now in NZ and each speaker gave an interesting perspective on where healthcare is moving. The event gave me (as a novice in this area) motivation to continue to be courageous within my own organisation for technological solutions." Sheryl Hunt | Nurse Consultant, Strategic Workforce | Director of Nursing & Midwifery Office Capital & Coast DHB


"Thanks for an enjoyable and enlightening day. My colleagues and I came away with a better understanding of the opportunities technology provides to improve the care of our patients , as well as a vision of how different healthcare could look if we set direction now to make best use of technology in the future. The benefits for Allied health and Nursing clinicians in attending an event like this, is the exposure to the incredibly exciting opportunities technology provides for them, the opportunity to network with people who are the innovators and early adopters, who can open our eyes to the amazing potential future of healthcare." Andrew Harris, Service Manager- Allied and Community ServicesHutt Valley DHB
