  1. It was a pleasure to spend a day in the company of such dynamic and motivating people from all walks of healthcare and innovation at .med Conference. So reassuring to see that the core of all the technological advances was the patient’s wellbeing. So for the medical ‘technophobes’ like myself, technology is not taking over medicine and healthcare – it is enhancing it. Looking forward to the next chapter Ronan.
