And why is health technology so important?

We are all paying far too much for healthcare.

Health care costs are unsustainable at their current rate of growth. Much of health budgets is being wasted on over servicing and excessive bureaucracy.

We have to reform healthcare and ensure that future generations can continue to access public health care services.

Hospital and medication errors are a chronic and ongoing problem.

Most errors are not due to the poor behaviour of a few individuals.

The majority of errors are due to diagnostic errors, fragmentation of data, inadequate follow up and outdated technology currently being used in many hospitals and nursing homes.

Good topic. ICU was a cacophony of alarms, mostly ignored because they were just not relevant. I favour less people in hospitals (end of life is not a curable disease), wearable devices & AI monitoring for those who are. Less stress for both sides of the hospital bed 👍🏻 https://t.co/WEsFdf7Nzs

My thoughts - remove all tax subsidies and also all governments control - let people pay for what ever insurers want to offer. People would be surprised by the results. https://t.co/GhxRdalEuV
