Future of Rural Health

The OECD conference on Enhancing Rural Innovation, 9-12 April 2018 in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK, featured discussion on ten key drivers of rural innovation. I presented some relevant technological trends influencing the “Future of Health”. In addition to some technology push trends including e-health, I highlighted that the future is not deterministic, and that citizen-driven innovation could also influence developments. The main issue in rural healthcare identified by participants in the OECD Ideas Factory on health was that medical professionals don’t want to live and work in rural areas. It is hard to conceive a technological solution for that problem. Info:
