Overcoming barriers that prevent widespread adoption of healthcare technologies

The use of technology in healthcare can be beneficial to many companies but there are still challenges when trying to implement them. With any form of change comes resistance, making it important to know how to overcome these barriers.

Adeboye Fajemisin, Co-founder & Executive Director at Whispa Health and Tamir Kessel, EMEA & APAC Business Development at BreezoMeter, shared the challenges their companies faced when implementing healthcare technologies and how they were mitigated. 

Adeboye stressed the importance of working with traditional healthcare providers and making sure they understood how new technologies are here to support them and compliment their services.
