Free seminar and workshop on ethics & healthcare technology

The organizations behind the SAVE DATA project – MEDVIA, imec and Vito – invite you to Ethics and Healthcare Technology, a free seminar (in Dutch) on ethical considerations in developing and using healthcare data and technology.

With so many new evolutions in healthcare technology, it is crucial to consider the ethical issues involved from the beginning. How can your company develop technology that is truly aimed at improving quality of life and well-being?

In this afternoon session, we hear from experts on these ethical considerations, then get to work hands-on in sessions examining the King Baudouin Foundation’s Caring Technology Principles. We will split up into smaller groups to look at concrete cases, learn how to ensure that your own company or organization is focused on high-quality healthcare technology, and see how the toolbox can be further developed to continue to provide an ethical basis.
