Business Briefing with Mark Fitzgibbon
Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, nib
From “Sickcare” to “Healthcare”
For the greater part, most healthcare systems around the world are focused on curing sickness rather than prevention. Big data, artificial intelligence and the digital age are reshaping the way healthcare is thought and delivered. In this new digital era, we will predict and hopefully prevent disease before it's onset, and better manage or treat it. With digital dashboards, we will know as much about our health in real time, as we know what is happening with our cars.
Hear from Mark Fitzgibbon on the limitations of our present healthcare systems and the power of AI and technology to personalise healthcare.
