Speakers from leading Institutions Join Healthcare Innovation Summit Africa 2022

JOHANNESBURG, Nov. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The healthcare industry has historically been slow in adopting technology, however, studies show that by embracing emerging technologies such as AI, EHR, IoMT, augmented reality, wearables and robotics the industry can reap significant benefits, namely improved patient care, lower healthcare costs, dosage error reduction, hospital asset tracking and monitoring, and reducing the need for large numbers of on-site medical personnel in African healthcare facilities.

For sustainable success and growth in the healthcare arena, it is critical to embrace technologies that not only result in a reduction in the overall cost of care, especially in these economically challenging times, but also keep up with global trends. The 7th annual Healthcare Innovation Summit Africa aims to tackle the many healthcare challenges that still exist in Africa, as well as critically assess the ways in which emerging technology trends can improve healthcare on the continent.

Set to take place on the 16th and 17th of  November 2022, at Emperors Palace, the seventh edition of the Healthcare Innovation Summit Africa will focus on exploring emerging healthcare technology trends and aims to provide solutions to technology challenges within healthcare. Under the theme 'Accelerating Digital Transformation in Healthcare: From Crisis to Opportunity', the summit will host the who's who of African healthcare for two days of networking, lively intellectual exchange and exploration to see what's new, what's cutting-edge and what will shape the future of healthcare.

HISA2022 will join the dots between innovation and practicality, presenting the latest healthcare technologies and showcasing their practical application and integration into existing healthcare infrastructure.
