David gives an introduction on the second roundtable, specifically; how the internet of things and technology have the capabilities to create a precise and personalized health care system. David’s objective is making health professionals realise that we can start doing things today, and we don’t need to wait around for our legacy systems to catch up and to be integrated. This will provide better outcomes for research, and will lead into much better outcomes for health services planning and management.
“What we’re going to be carrying today is putting the internet of things, technologies and capabilities into the context of an overall approach to what I’d call really precision personalised healthcare and both of those are important words and the sense and respond aspects of the internet of things and its many different guises allows us to do that. I’m hoping what we get from today is very much the understanding that we can start doing stuff today. If we wait around and wait for our legacy systems to catch up and to be integrated we’re going to be here forever. There’s really good and exciting stuff we can start doing today no matter where we are in the health system and that really would provide for better outcomes for me as a person. It will lead into better outcomes for research and it will lead to much better outcomes for health services, planning and management.”
