Head Of Hello Doctor And Former Top Billing Presenter To Host HISA 2018

4th annual Healthcare Innovation Summit Africa

Dr Michael Mol, Head of Hello Doctor and former Top Billing presenter has been confirmed as host of the 4th annual Healthcare Innovation Summit Africa – set to take place on 17-18 October 2018 at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa.

As the host of this one-of-a-kind gathering, Dr Michael Mol is a medical doctor, executive TV producer and presenter, international speaker, social entrepreneur, and business consultant.

From trauma doctor to TV personality, Dr Mol, traded the casualty room for the small screen where he anchored one of South Africa’s longest running prime time show’s, Top Billing, and launched SABC’s live morning show, Expresso. He later combined his passion for both medicine and media to produce two new internationally acclaimed TV series titled “Hello Doctor” and “The Dr. Mol Show”.

Both shows aimed to educate, entertain and inspire people to live their best life, by being the healthiest they can be, while ensuring that South Africans had access to personal, affordable and quality healthcare through immediate access to doctors through their mobile phones. That vision became a reality with “Hello Doctor” – a mobile healthcare company with a game-changing approach to healthcare, using mobile technology to give anyone access to doctors anytime, anywhere, on any phone and in any language, and therefore, advancing #HealthForAll.

With “Paving the road to Sustainable Smart Healthcare” as the running theme for the summit, HISA 2018 will assemble hundreds of hospital CxOs, medical practitioners, healthcare IT leaders, service providers and government functionaries for two days of top-level content, workshops, case studies, live demo’s and dynamic conversations.
