Overview                       View Programme

The nature of healthcare is changing. Patients have an expectation that they can access health services and care professionals when and where they need them. Services are striving to be transformational, offering services that are more integrated and personalised.

Digital innovation has the potential to help manage increasing demands on the system.digihealthTechnology now allows citizens to monitor their health and activity levels by themselves through mobile apps, telehealth or wearable technology. Traditional methods of communication between clinician and patient are also changing. The growth in social media and the use of video technology and the access to high speed broadband connections and smartphones is opening up the opportunities for greater patient interaction with the healthcare system.

In the past the NHS has been accused of being slow in its adoption of effective new technologies. However, a £100 million funding pot is destined to help to drive better use of technology in pilot projects aiming to create centres of global digital excellence. If data and technology are to become embedded in everyday care it is important to build patient trust in the use of new technologies, in new working practices and in data sharing. The Department of Health’s new consultation on a opt-out and consent model aims to clarify constraints that apply to data use in the NHS and promote new digital health initiatives to improve patient outcomes.

DigiHealth UK: Enhancing the Patient’s Journey will promote the best practices in digital healthcare innovation along the patient journey as well as the very latest opportunities on the horizon in the health and social care sector. This unique conference will give you the key information and knowledge to take advantage of new tools, technologies and platforms, exploring how to deliver substantial benefits to both patients and professionals alike.

New pilot programmes have been implemented across the country by partnership networks to help detect long term conditions in the early stages and provide effective prevention strategies. Greater Manchester Academic Health Science Network (GM AHSN) is currently working along with Salford CCG to deliver a mobile app-based device to help detect atrial fibrillation, a major cause of stroke that it is often left undetected. King’s Health Partners have joined forces with a pioneering tech company to work on a new trial in London to determine how wearable technology can help prevent Type 2 diabetes in those patients most at risk of developing the disease. Preventing people from progressing to the disease would have a major impact on the health of the population and the financial burden on the NHS.

Integrated care is often viewed as the Holy Grail for healthcare and is a notorious challenge for the NHS – how can data sharing and technology help? The primary aim when sharing data is that health professionals have the most up-to-date information on a patient and avoiding duplication for the person and the care system. An open consultation from the Department of Health is seeking views on proposed data security standards and new consent and opt-out models for data sharing in the NHS and social care. The aim is to clarify constraints that apply to data use in the NHS and promote new digital health initiatives to improve patient outcomes. Based on Salford’s success in setting up the NHS’s first integrated electronic patient record system, initiatives like the DataWell project by GM AHSN, the Health eResearch Centre or the Farr Institute are working to give NHS organisations a secure way to share records by 2017. Learning Healthcare Systems are using data to improve diagnosis and help to identify the treatment that is likely to have the best outcomes for each individual patient according to their priorities.

Traditional methods of communication between clinician and patient are also changing. The growth in the use of video technology, smartphones and the access to high speed broadband connections allow patients to take charge of their own health, offering a greater interaction with healthcare system anywhere outside of the hospital. The NHS England and the Tinder Foundation have published a new report “Health & Digital: Reducing Inequalities, Improving Society” that analyses the benefits of tackling health inequality through increased digital literacy, helping vulnerable people to improve their digital skills to self-manage their health.

A £100 million funding pot by NHS England gives the opportunity to pilot projects to lead the way for the whole system to move faster and showing signs of improvement data innovation and delivering benefits for patients. Through sharing learning and resources with other local organisations is expected to help deliver a sustainable and transformed NHS where the centres of global digital excellence will be core.

Being an exciting time for the NHS to move forward, don’t miss the opportunity to join us at DigiHealth UK: Enhancing the Patient’s Journey and explore through the latest and most innovative practices and how to harness the potential that technology in healthcare offers.
