This is the first in a series of 3 monthly sessions at Health Foundry curated by thinkingaroundcorners to understand effective technological interventions in healthcare. So whether you are an entrepreneur, medical practitioner or a health bunny, come along and join the movement.
4.30pm-6pm: Open roundtable with innovator speakers seeding the discussion followed by roundtable discussing points of view and examples of good and bad practice.
6pm-7pm: Networking and healthy nibbles.
In this first session, we explore how innovators create solutions that feel like natural extensions of existing behaviour. Either the intervention or the technology is rendered invisible to ensure maximum usability, usage and effectiveness.
Aaron Johnson from Technology Will Save Us will talk about the journey to develop Mover Kit that subverts the paradigm by placing fitness benefits WITHIN an overtly tech product coded by children, for children.
Shamus Husheer, CEO and Founder of Heartfelt Technologies will share how their heart monitor device fits naturally around the patient's lifestyle. This means one less thing for heart failure patients and their carers to worry about with their often complex drug and monitoring routines; for the doctor this means consistently collected data to help patients live longer, healthier lives.
