The Medical Innovation Theatre featured discussions developed in partnership with Defence Medical Services and JHub Med, the services innovation accelerator that is tasked with identifying emerging technologies and delivering them into the hands of the end user at pace.
The Theatre was designed to demonstrate the latest innovations along the Operational Patient Care Pathway, including learnings from COVID-19 and applications for new technologies. The programme looked at future requirements for the modern military healthcare system, and how these innovations can support the delivery of those requirements.
Whether conducting high intensity operations or supporting humanitarian relief, a robust forward deployed medical capability is essential. Increasingly, the services must also be required to work with civilian counterparts to support public health and large scale national resilience projects. The ongoing COVID 19 pandemic and the instrumental role that has been played by Defence Medical Services, demonstrates this close working relationship and the value of ensuring interoperability between civilian and defence partners.
