STL / ETIS Telcos in health workshop

Telcos in health workshop

Hosted by ETIS and STL Partners

 

Friday 16th October, Brussels

The combination of improving health IT systems, more demanding patients, the growing maturity of analytics and AI, and rising cost pressure on healthcare systems are creating a tipping point for growth in digital health. As one of the least digitised sectors, with significant differences in needs and maturity across national markets, healthcare provides telecoms operators with a real and lasting opportunity to add value beyond core connectivity.

However, healthcare has historically been a difficult market for telcos to penetrate. Drawing on lessons from telcos with 10+ years of experience in healthcare, this workshop will help others understand which part of the digital health market they should play in, and how.

This event is open to telcos that are considering or already developing a digital health business.
