TTH Cambridge Panel Event

Location map on


Healthcare worldwide is a system in crisis. In the developed world impersonal patient-doctor relationships are breaking down as people turn to the internet for self diagnosis. In the developing world there is often no access to doctors at all.

Bringing healthcare and patients into the digital information age may be the future. From tracking malaria drugs in the developing world by SMS , sharing information about disease outbreaks via social networking sites, to empowering patients and doctors to share diagnosis and treatment ideas, significant changes to the digital and social infrastructure of the global healthcare system could revolutionise the way we look after own health, and other peoples’.

Join our panellists for a lively and informative debate about the key challenges, innovations and consequences of digitising healthcare.

Panel Chair: Dr Richard Barnett, Department of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Cambridge


Dr Matthew Jones, Judge Business School, University of Cambridge Information systems in healthcare

Dr Dianne Sullivan, Scientific Adviser – Mobile Healthcare, Vodafone Group Research & Development Impact of digitization of healthcare on development, SMS FOR LIFE project

Mr John Hall Director, Deloitte Group Care pathway analytics linked to QIPP (quality, innovation, productivity & prevention)
