During this Tech Week session, we will hear from six people ranging from an IT company expert to health professionals and researchers from the CDHB and the University of Otago Christchurch, who are advancing healthcare through technical applications. Several of these technologies are in use at CDHB and they range from 3D printing of new tissue to Virtual Reality, and from advanced imaging to specialised patient management systems.
You should be present for the whole duration of this event.
