What is the role of wireless in providing sustainable health and social care and tackling the "Digital Divide"?

Governments, public bodies and industry are starting to realise the high socio-economic value that connectivity brings. "Digital Poverty" or the "Digital Divide" are terms used to recognise the difference that connectivity can make to individuals, households and businesses. The link between digital poverty and economic poverty and the associated social and healthcare challenges is clear. Elsewhere, connectivity can enable health and social services to be delivered in the home. These services range across virtual GP appointments, medicine intake monitoring, health device data sharing and much more – all focused on improving health and reducing the burden on the health service.

This track will examine the role of wireless in society and in the delivery of novel health services and ask whether existing commercially-driven deployment models for wireless are working well enough to deliver these socially motivated services or is a change in approach needed?
