The Future of Global Healthcare Passed
Tuesday August 25, 2020 13:00 - 13:30 Spetsteknik för hälsa, vård och omsorg
Lecturer: Andrew Botham
Dr Andrew Botham considers a future where point of care testing is done at home by the patient and considers whether it is possible to leverage the technology all of us carry in our pockets, to deliver superior healthcare whilst also lowering costs. The cameras on mobile devices are now so sophisticated, they are in many cases better than the digital eye in a clinical grade scanner. Can this technology be used to analyse urine and blood samples and deliver clear and immediate results?
