  • Overview

Embedding digital technologies into the fabric of healthcare delivery has been a protracted and difficult undertaking. However, the pandemic proved that it can be done at scale and pace when dealing with a crisis. The brief now is to maintain that momentum to have a technological enabled NHS to support staff to manage future demands.

Open Forum Events has been at the forefront of hosting events championing healthcare innovation. Past programmes have discussed policies, explained organisational structure and responsibilities and showcased the cutting-edge technologies designed to deliver 21st century healthcare.

To assess the legacy the pandemic has created for digital deployment and the impact technologies are realising for patient care, join us at the Delivering Digital Health Innovation UK conference.

This full accredited CPD event will discuss the role that technology and data is already playing within the NHS and how future digital innovation will enable the changing landscape of the health and social care system. Our speaker programme of leading experts will share knowledge and exchange opinion on how the progressive and sustained use of digital technologies can benefit a transformed and more integrated healthcare system. The agenda will showcase a number of initiatives and examples of best practice from throughout the health and social care system and there will be ample opportunity for interactive discussion and networking amongst fellow professionals and peers.

"Improving Patient Management"

Highlighting how a change in culture from simply patients recording data and sending to consultants, educating patients that are wanting to understand the data and be able to understand it for themselves. Not only does it give patients the capacity to self-care their conditions to lessen the need of hospital intervention when possible. But ultimately through these circumstances explain why and how self-care provides plays a key role in reducing hospital pressures for preventable reasons.

Highlighting the direct issues that innovators must deal with to get funding in order to carry out research or manufacture digital products, or providing a digital service under AHSN supervision. As well finding out how to seek 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.
