Andrew Raynes, CIO and Director of Digitalat Royal Papworth Hospital UK, will deliver a keynote address at Healthcare Innovation Summit 2018, organised by IT News Africa, set to take place on 17-18 October 2018 at the Gallagher Convention Centre, Johannesburg,
Andrew is Chief Information Officer and Director of Digital at Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, UK's largest specialist cardiothoracic hospital and the country's main heart and lung transplant centre.
