The emergence of Digital Health and Smart Technology in all phases of the healthcare sector represents some exciting opportunities. It is also providing many strategic and operational challenges for those active in the field. New technology advances, business models and IP protection approaches require innovative leadership from those investing their ideas, time and money in these opportunities.

This seminar will hear from thought leaders from Canada, the UK and Sweden addressing these issues in order to showcase what is happening in their territories but more importantly in order to discuss what constitutes best practice when selecting your optimal strategy.
