BusinessCloud has partnered with membership body pro-manchester for the third edition of its Health Tech Conference on Friday 9th December 2022.

Manchester is home to world-leading research and development assets as well as the largest clinical academic campus in Europe. The event, to be held in the heart of the city’s innovation district at Bruntwood SciTech’s No. 1 Circle Square development on Oxford Road, will explore new and innovative ideas developed in the past 12 months and the difference they may make to the future of healthcare delivery in the UK.

The event will also look at changes in legislation, operating methods and culture – and how all these things are driving a fundamental shift in our healthcare system for good.

BusinessCloud executive editor Maguire, an award-winning journalist who has hosted more than 700 events, will host a panel session entitled ‘How data is driving innovation in medicine & healthcare’. Founders at three innovative MedTech and HealthTech businesses will discuss the integration of technology into healthcare and the challenges they face in scaling their solutions to help more people.

You can see the full agenda for the day further down.
