WHAT: CXOs from leading technology companies-- Activ Surgical, Microsoft and Innominds --come together during this virtual fireside chat to discuss the latest proven digital solutions to help healthcare leaders innovate and stay ahead amid new disruptive technology-based business models. Executives from these three companies will explore how a Microsoft Azure Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled ecosystem, combined with AI and 5G technologies, can drive telehealth solutions and radically alter healthcare.

As the healthcare industry embraces digital technology, security, data privacy and compliance are major factors to consider in the highly regulated healthcare and medtech ecosystem. Leading medtech device companies are changing this landscape through innovation and collaboration with Microsoft Azure IoT. Hear from Activ Surgical on how they are building FDA-approved, future-ready medtech devices and building AI-assisted surgical systems together with Innominds by leveraging Azure capabilities.

In addition, 400,000 deaths every year are due to avoidable medical errors in the U.S. alone, and 26 percent of all medical errors are preventable surgical errors. This fireside chat will highlight how Microsoft Azure IoT is making AI-assisted surgeries with Digital Twins and Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) a reality through seamless cloud connectivity, real time inferencing and training workloads to improve patient care and outcomes globally.
