Mind the Gap: will AI and Digital create a more inclusive health system?
Manchester One HealthTech is partnering with Manchester Futurists to deep dive into AI and digital health and how these new technologies may support or potentially exacerbate inequality, inclusion and parity in health and social care.
The much anticipated Topol Review states that technology offers the potential to reshape health and care, empowering people who are willing and able to become more actively engaged in their health. However, the review also recognises that it is critically important that digital healthcare technologies do not exacerbate inequalities in healthcare. The clear and present impact of health inequality is evidenced in a seminal publication by the NHSA: their 2018 report on UK geographical health inequalities has been critical in promoting focus on this important conversation as governments, health providers and citizens begin to enter new models of care.
In response to both of these reports, the next Manchester One HealthTech event will partner with Manchester Futurists to deep dive into AI and digital health and how these new technologies may support or potentially exacerbate inequality, inclusion and parity in health and social care. We will examine some of the key recommendations from the Topol Review and explore how we can create an environment where everyone, including patients, citizens and staff, feels empowered and involved in the design of a digital healthcare system which actively improves equality and inclusion.”
Refreshments (kndly provided by our hosts) and chats from 6.30 for prompt 7pm start.

We’ve been awarded a Fairer Tech grant from doteveryone to make our events more accessible (woop woop!). If for any reason there are barriers to engaging in the community we invite anyone to apply for up to £30* per person per event to cover personal costs to improve this. The money can cover just about anything, including but not limited to child/other care, taxis if you’re not able-bodied, trains if you live out in the countryside, a live captioner, recording of the event or loss of earnings if you have a side job along your studies. Who are we to judge?! If you feel it’s a barrier, we agree too.
Simply fill out this VERY SHORT form and we’ll confirm the expense.
Please note we are in the process of transitioning to a new website and ticketing platform and therefore both the Eventbrite and our website can be used to secure tickets for this event
