Dr. Alan Davies, Medical Director,GE Healthcare, delivers a seminar on the use of technology to manage the burden of chronic disease.

Chronic care management takes up to about 83% of health care costs. Improved healthcare outcomes have an emphasis on management of the patient, rather than the disease. Historically, there has been little coordination between the agencies providing different aspects of care to an individual.

Technology will play an essential role in the education of the patient, management of the chronic conditions, and improving health care productivity. Technology can be an enabler of improved management of chronic disease.

Andrew Little is an alumnus of the School of Engineering at Warwick, who has made a huge success out of pioneering the automated supply of books for mail order companies such as Amazon. He has kindly funded the School to establish a lecture series of general engineering interest.
