About the Healthcare Innovation Summit Africa 2017
Each year, the Healthcare Innovation Summit Africa attracts the “who’s who” of the continent’s technology and healthcare industries. These sponsors, innovators, guests, and presenters all gather to spend two valuable days networking, collaborating, and exchanging ideas and information on topics that range from personalized healthcare, security, and robotics to electronic health records, telemedicine advances, artificial intelligence, and the future of healthcare. This intense networking serves to mesh these two industries and drive their advancement as a whole, which has a significant impact on everyone’s lives.
All in all, the Healthcare Innovation Summit Africa connects the dots between the healthcare industry and the latest innovations in technology. This forum allows tech companies, such as Tactile Technologies, to demonstrate the practical applications of today’s state-of-the-art technology and how it can be seamlessly integrated into the fields of medicine and healthcare. And according to Mauro Mercuri, the Group Director of Tactile Technologies, “Tactile will be exhibiting at this event to showcase our products, which are suitable for applications in the medical industry.”
Tactile Technologies to Showcase Range of Healthcare Devices
Healthcare Innovation Summit Africa 2017Tactile stocks a range of medical-grade devices (touch screen monitors and tablets) that have specifically been crafted to tackle the rigors and demands of a medical, surgical, or healthcare setting. The very design of the devices ensures that they don’t harbor bacteria, can be cleaned using harsh sterilizing agents and can be operated with a gloved hand, among other key features.
Mauro Mercuri also had to say: “Application-wise we have products that system integrators, value-added resellers (VARs), and software developers can consider integrating into their healthcare applications, such as nursing stations, computer-aided therapy, electronic medical record keeping, paperless charting, patient self check-in and registration, and point–of-information installations. Furthermore, many of our products are certified to go into operating theatres and other critical care rooms.”
Among the products Tactile Technologies will be showcasing at the Healthcare Innovation Summit Africa 2017 are our range of Elo medical grade touch monitors, the MiTAC MioCARE tablet, and the DoviSCAN DS-100 stationary scanner, all of which have been innovated for use in medical environments.
