Professor Andrew Farmer is a General Practitioner and researcher based at the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford. He will focus his talk on care for people with long-term health conditions and on the prospects for using new technologies for improving their health. Why is it taking so long for mobile devices to become part of routine health care? What are the implications for privacy around use of electronic data to support health care? Can wearable monitoring devices replace regular visits to the nurse or doctor?
