Track 3. Multidisciplinary technological resources applied to health sciences

As has been demonstrated in recent decades, the development and use of new technological advances in the areas of prevention, diagnosis, and patient recovery directly impact health outcome indicators and the safety of health care processes. Although more and more technological advances are being introduced in health and care settings, many of the technological developments are still not developed from an end-user-centered perspective, and others are mere proofs of concept. It is therefore not only advisable, but also necessary, to provide healthcare ecosystem stakeholders with a holistic overview of new technological developments in the field. In this way, they can take a broader perspective in the adoption of technologies for health and care delivery and participate not only in the design, development and implementation of health care management, but also in the various related technological components involved in the delivery of these services (hardware, software, platforms, protocols, ontologies, etc.). In addition, the use of cutting-edge technologies in medical education has proven to be extremely effective, as it allows for the creation of realistic learning environments to gain experience with procedures and equipment that will be commonly used in medical practice, thus increasing the safety of future patients. The accelerated technological progress in our society is causing major changes in the systems that make it possible to apply additional training methods. The goal of this track is to gather the latest technological developments in the field of health sciences. Therefore, this track provides an excellent opportunity for the promotion and sharing of innovative experiences in both biomedical education and clinical practice.
