Learn how artificial intelligence will support the new world of healthcare

Register now for An Awakening in Healthcare — a FREE online symposium exploring artificial intelligence, workforce readiness for AI, and the actions clinicians can take today.

As this decade unfolds, healthcare providers face new and urgent demands. The impact of COVID-19 and changing patient expectations are accelerating the need to collaborate and innovate, and expand access to affordable, quality healthcare to all.

Back for its third year, the Centre for Healthcare Knowledge & Innovation and Southern Cross University have partnered up to bring 2021 Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare Symposium – An Awakening in Healthcare

This one-day online event is free to attend and will be split into three themes:

  • The New World: 10am – 12pm
  • The Research: 12:30pm – 2:45pm
  • Next steps: 3:30pm – 5:30pm

All those registered will receive one month’s access to the Symposium content.

Keynote speakers:

Principal Research Scientist, Massachusetts Institute of Technology Clinical Research (USA)

As clinical research director and principal research scientist at the MIT Laboratory for Computational Physiology and as a practicing intensive care unit (ICU) physician Leo has spoken in more than 35 countries across 6 continents about the value of data and learning in health systems. Leo will be talking about how we can ensure machine learning for healthcare works for groups typically under-represented in health research.

Health Industry Executive, Microsoft Australia and CEO of Next Practice

Which disciplines will be disrupted? How will the roles of clinicians change? How will the experience of healthcare change?
