Dr Mukesh Haikerwal will show participants real-life examples of a clinicians journey with technology in health, in order to improve patient care.
Having recently opened a multidisciplinary health hub Dr Haikerwal will discuss some of the change management aspects of 'e-enabling' a practice as well as some of the technical barriers to a smooth implementation. This event would be ideal for clinicians curious about how to enhance their practice with technology as well as for those interested in coordinated care all under one roof.
Cirquit Health is a proof-of-concept with a vision to show how information and care can be 'joined-up' to improve patient outcomes.
