Innovation is driving the growth of healthcare globally – as new technologies open up new ways to treat patients, and Big Data delivers more diagnostic power (for individuals and populations), creative ways of making patient care more responsive and cost effective are now possible.
The point is to create smart environments that contribute to treatment, recovery and to give healthcare professionals the best chance to make each personal encounter benefit the patient.
The GREAT Festival showcases a variety of brilliant ideas that are enabling a wide range of futuristic medical facilities to be built right now.
Finding new ways to bring patient records together on one screen so that medical professionals always have the big picture on the frontline of care is vital. New ways to break down barriers between document formats, x-rays, test results and other data sources are transforming patient care.
Tracking infections, potential or actual epidemics and planning for the treatment of large numbers of people is increasingly powered by digital technologies. The exchange of timely information across the spectrum of healthcare services whilst achieving total security is a challenge innovators are eager to meet.
To demonstrate support for this significant UK Government initiative and to support our growth objectives in UK SME/MME space, HSBC have chosen to be a Principal Partner of the GREAT Festival of Creativity.
