  • Overview

What this last two years has shown is that it is of paramount importance to address the issues of patient management in terms of needing to organise bed flow in hospitals at a greater efficiency. The question is what role digital technologies and applications have in assisting with this issue and providing the next solutions that are required not just to reduce hospital admissions over manageable conditions but to give people the ability to monitor conditions themselves in their homes which is beneficial for the patient as well as the hospital. Innovations in areas such as Remote Consultation in terms of diagnosis, Mobile/Self-Monitoring of vitals and self-management of long-term conditions all provide great opportunity and scope for the health sector to improve on quality of care as well reduce demand on hospitals to be taking these patients into beds. Furthermore, through these innovations what also needs to be addressed is the how the infrastructure is going to be implemented to give ease of access to the public across the country, whilst also needing to let people have an increased knowledge in how these products and applications can be used to benefit their lives and for many educating them on how to use them to their ultimate capability.

Our fully CPD Accredited programme of expert speakers will feature an overview of the challenges and opportunities ahead. Open Forum Events are delighted to be gaining a reputation for “truly inspirational” health and social care conferences. Our delegates are telling us that they leave our events with “new ideas and approaches” they can “actually apply” within their own organisations. We are proud to be recognised as a leading organiser of national conferences.

Chair’s Opening Address

Professor Niels Peek, Professor of Health Informatics, University of Manchester (Confirmed)


Keynote Address

Speaker TBC, Department of Health and Social Care (Invited)

"Improving Patient Management"

Highlighting how with recent events, the change in culture from simply patients recording data and sending to consultants to analyse to patients wanting to understand the data and being able to read if they are any changes in the readings, not only does it give patients the capacity to provide self-care to manageable conditions to lessen the need of hospital intervention when possible. Ultimately through these circumstances explain why and how self-care provides the capability to a play a key role in reducing hospital pressures for preventable reasons.


Speaker TBC, NHS Innovation Accelerator Programme (Invited)

"Implementation of New Innovations (Approval + Procedures)"

Enabling innovators to learn more on how to go through the process and outline the possibilities to become regionally recognised and highlight the direct issues that innovators must deal with to get funding in order to carry out research or manufacture digital products or provide a digital service under AHSN supervision as well seeking initial funding as well as from other sources. Whilst also seeing if there are ways to improve the systems currently in place to allow digital innovations to begin to be used in practice.

  • Di Bullman, Workstream Lead, Digital Readiness Programme, Health Education England (confirmed)
"Ability to provide the Health Infrastructure alongside innovation"

In an increasingly technology led department that is health care, this time more than ever is the paramount opportunity to make sure that the required infrastructure for patients to be able to use these digital technologies whether this is through collaboration with programming engines or even mobile and internet providers to ensure the scope for people to use these products and application is there. Also, that the required training and guides on how to use these innovations are available to patients with clear understanding of how they can be utilised to improve quality of life and ultimately require less intervention from doctors and hospitals.
