IMT at the European Parliament

Our CEO, Cristina De Juan, was at the European Parliament last month. She was invited by the healthcare workforce team to speak about our work in digital health education in UK for professionals and  entrepreneurs working in healthcare in UK. And to discuss how this training would improve the skills of the healthcare European workforce.

She was very impressed with the hard work and enthusiasm of the young parliament healthcare members synchronise this work and put it into policies.

Global MedTech Survey

Although there is a lot of media excitement around the potential of digital healthcare, the simple fact is that it is far harder than it should be to gain traction with healthcare and pharmaceutical organisations.

To look into detail at why this is happening, and to shine a light on the emerging technologies that might inspire the next wave of digital health innovation, we have partnered with  the communications firm, Ruder Finn, to conduct our first survey of medtech and digital health innovators.
