Should the EU rewrite the rulebook on liability in response to advances in artificial intelligence?

Addressing new expectations for the future of health

The past few years have seen a seismic shift in the entire healthcare landscape. The COVID-19 crisis required a new level of “always-on” and “right now” innovation to enable care to be delivered to the front lines, to all patients, and across geographies. As COVID-19 evolves from an acute crisis to a chronic issue with unpredictable ebbs and flows, the hyper-focused approach to innovation is more important than ever. The world now knows what we can do, even when conditions are less than optimal. Our focus on helping patients by getting the best evidence, tools, and support to clinicians demonstrated the power of collaboration, imagination and dedication. Moving forward, patients and healthcare partners will accept nothing less than that level of commitment to transform the future of health forever.

However, the pandemic has complicated the heart failure revival due to the burden of COVID-19 and the by-product of patients with long-term conditions, particularly cardiovascular. Patients were not seeing their doctors or nurses regularly throughout the pandemic, creating a backlog of people waiting […]

Achieving Cardiovascular health for All: A new vision for Europe
