DigiHealth UK: Transforming Healthcare Delivery

20 October 2016 Manchester Conference Centre, 78 Sackville Street, Manchester M1 3NJ

Digital technologies are changing the rules of the game in the global healthcare landscape. Early this year the government launched its latest attempt to improve the use of technology in the NHS in England. A £4.2 billion investment, destined to encourage innovation and the uptake of digital technologies, promises to rethink and reshape how healthcare is delivered. Pioneering programmes are aiming to promote system interoperability and the sharing of data to support prevention strategies and patient centred care.

In a challenging financial environment, IT services could not only improve the quality of care through enhancing the patients’ experience of services, but also enable the NHS to realise efficiency benefits such as a reduced administrative burden, reduced hospital admissions and patient demand, and improved population health.

Join DigiHealth: Transforming Healthcare Delivery for the opportunity to hear from those leading the national agenda, and discover key digital innovations that could transform the future of health services. Invited speakers include Simon Stevens, Chief Executive of NHS England, Andy Williams, Chief Executive of NHS Digital (Former Health and Social Care Information Centre), Mustafa Suleyman, Co-founder and Head of Applied Artificial Intelligence at Google DeepMind and Matthew Swindells, National Director, Commissioning Operations and Information at NHS England.

  • Energy assessingp
  • Progress of the Digital Health Agenda

  • Identifying patients at risk
  • Digital Telehealth Programme
  • The importance of digital health in the implementation of the Five Year Forward View
