SYMTECH 2019-National Conference on Allied Healthcare in a Technology Driven Ecosystem
Technology in the last two decades has revolutionized the way healthcare is delivered worldwide. Differing standards of education, lack of uniformity in designation & work profile of Allied Healthcare Professionals (AHPs) are some of the definite concerns globally. Skill creation and skill enhancement is a felt need in the field of Healthcare, of which AHPs are an integral part.
AHPs play a range of roles from health promotion, health improvement and early intervention to disability and palliative care. Currently there is transition from single point of care to a multidisciplinary health team approach for obtaining betterment of patient outcomes whereby AHPs are emerging as an important work force supporting diagnosis, recovery and quality of life (QOL).
Therapeutic and diagnostic departments in hospitals like intensive & critical care units, blood banks, clinical laboratories, dialysis department, cardiac catheterization laboratory, nuclear medicine, radiology, radiotherapy, operation theatre and anesthesia departments employ AHPs. Presently there is increasing demand of AHPs in medical equipment companies, homecare industry, medical imaging industry, standalone dialysis centers, diagnostic centers &services, academic institutes, simulation centers, IT industry and research.
Symbiosis Institute of Health Sciences (SIHS) under the aegis of Symbiosis International (Deemed University) is one of the leading institutions in India that is imparting knowledge and practical skills in major domains of allied healthcare sector such as Respiratory Therapy, Cardiac Care Technology, Imaging Science, Dialysis Technology, Operation Theatre &Anesthesia Technology, Clinical Laboratory Technology, Radiotherapy and Biomedical Instrumentation.
With disruptive technologies and desired better patient outcome, the multidisciplinary AHPs need to be developed and nurtured towards skill development, quality enhancement and patient safety for achieving a well-orchestrated and efficient healthcare delivery.
In consonance with these transformative paradigms Symbiosis Institute of Health Sciences (SIHS), has organized a National Conference on SYMTECH 2019 - “Allied Healthcare in a Technology Driven Ecosystem” on Friday 4th January 2019 & Saturday 5th January 2019.
The objective of the conference is to empower allied healthcare professionals, promote development, inculcate advanced technology to clinical practices, and understand emerging diagnostic & therapeutic modalities, innovation, quality assurance, accreditation and regulation in allied healthcare, developing entrepreneurial mindsets and skill enhancement. The conference will provide a platform for researchers in the field of Allied Healthcare to exchange their ideas and forge new collaborative partnership and interaction with India’s leading technocrats in the field of Medical technology. The conference will bring industry experts, academicians, medical professionals, technologists & the hospital sector together to deliberate the concerns, challenges and advancements in the field of Medical Technology. The conference intends to grow over time and attract more societies in the field of Allied health professionals in the future.
