“Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise,” Ben Franklin once famously said. Good advice, but it takes a lot more than that these days to stay healthy.
Digital healthcare is in the midst of a revolution; from wearable devices that monitor and report on your daily well being, to medical advances using hardware, software and connected devices (Internet of Things) to provide better services, surgeries, medicines and analytics.
The Digital Health and Healthcare World Congress 2018, being held on May 8th and 9th in London, is one of the leading technology digital healthcare forums in Europe, covering all aspects of medical device and mobile technology.
We are delighted to say that our own Dr Paul Fermor, UK Solutions Director for Software AG, has been invited to speak at this year’s conference. Paul leads mixed disciplinary and seniority teams to convert digital transformation aspirations within the enterprise into operational reality.
Paul has recently led the development of a pioneering healthcare asset efficiency initiative in the UK. Paul's interest in digital health gained momentum during his pursuit of a PhD in Physics at the University of Surrey, where he worked on the development of expert medical imaging control systems. Here, he applied machine vision, time series analysis and radiation transport modelling to simulate control systems capable of optimally configuring video x-ray medical imaging systems in real time
Paul’s ability to analyze a combination of high volumes of real-time and static data sets has enabled the creation of solutions to complex problems spread across multiple industries. In the highly demanding environment of the capital markets industry, solutions have been deployed in activities including high frequency trading and automated market surveillance. The combination of data analysis and Software AG’s market leading technology is now facilitating the provision of solutions in the healthcare industry with equal success.
Digitalization enables better health services to be provided to more people in both remote and highly clustered locations around the world, all leveraging the valuable expertise of the health care practitioners.
Paul will be moderating a panel at the event: "Digital health market - emerging new verticals and revenue streams - at 11AM on 9th May. He will also speak at 3.45 PM; in his talk: “Leveraging IoT and legacy technology investments to improve patient care," Paul will discuss how providers and practitioners can build scalable digital health solutions, while keeping and leveraging legacy technology via integration. He will also cover how practitioners can manage the processing of large, mixed-quality data from very reliable large medical machines to (innately inaccurate) personal well-being devices.
A healthy attitude is contagious, said playwright Tom Stoppard. Come and catch some from Paul at Digital Health World Congress 2018.
