Gone is the era of the locked hospital file cabinet – digital advances are rapidly democratising health data and transforming the way we interact with the medical industry.

For some, it’s an opportunity to reimagine a woefully outdated healthcare model. For others, questions around privacy and private interests are cause for serious concern.

Join our expert Frontier Forum panellists for a deep-dive on the health data revolution.
