In November 2014 IPPOSI hosted a day-long conference titled ‘Connected Health & Me: The Patient Perspective’. The event was held in Dublin Castle and featured Minister for Health Leo Varadkar as the keynote speaker on Connected Health that featured world-class speakers on the topic including:
- ePatient Dave (Ted Talks)
- Professor George Crooks (NHS Scotland)
- Professor Brian Caulfield, UCD
The conference also included a ‘health hack’ where five patient teams paired up with connected health researchers to try and develop technology solutions that were relevant to their condition area. Each team began with a presentation in the morning session and after lunch all attending delegates were invited to join a team of their own choosing to contribute to developing a solution in any way they saw fit.
