Harnessing Digital: Health & Care - Services Beyond Expectation

Following the success of our most recent Digital Health & Care Conference in Edinburgh which saw more than 350 delegates attend over the two days, we're excited to launch the Harnessing Digital: Health & Care Summit which will be held in Birmingham on the 7th June.

Replicating the format of our Scottish event, the Summit will create an energetic discussion focused on how health and care providers can deliver the next stage of integrated services, harnessing the benefits of disruptive technology developments in line with the Five Year Forward View.

Delegates will discuss the impact of the STPs and ACSs on digital transformation and how this is enabling a redesign of the care system. Other topics for discussion include the vision for utilising advanced population management solutions to transition to more predictive / preventative services and how our aging population and people living with multiple complex conditions both physical and mental can manage their care journey in a non-clinical setting.

The challenge for technology suppliers is to create intuitive, person-centred solutions that integrate with existing systems and devices with both the care provider and patient needs at the forefront of design. Attendance at the summit will give you a unique opportunity to hear from health and care providers regarding their technology requirements and in turn, enable you to showcase how your innovative solutions can support improved service delivery and outcomes.

Free-to-attend for the public sector.
