Hospitals of the Future – Integrating Space Technology

By on

A hospital of the past may be thought of as a physical building bound by walls and a roof. In bringing existing hospitals into the present, any new technology developments have been made to fit within the current environment meaning everything is an add-on as opposed to a fully integrated approach.

When thinking about hospitals of the future, they are being considered to form part of a healthcare ecosystem, interacting with other care providers, ambulances, pharmaceuticals, and others as one. Fundamentally, the most important aspect of the hospital of the future is the priority it puts on people: the staff such as clinicians, IT teams, porters and triage teams, the patients, and the visitors. Everyone wants the information they need to be immediately available, and this is something space technology can help with.

John Vesey, Business Manager for Health and Wellbeing at the Satellite Applications Catapult, will be exploring how space solutions and data can support this concept of a future hospital ecosystem at the UK Space Agency’s Space to Connect event on Thursday 21 January 2021. The event will bring together a range of industries supported by space sector innovation and highlight opportunities to collaborate and learn from each other.

If you are a connectivity or health sector provider or supplier, or are simply interested in finding out more, please join John alongside Emily Gravestock (UK Space Agency) and Tony Mears (Hampshire Hospitals Foundation Trust)  for their presentation by registering here:
