West Midlands Digital & Data Enabled Collaborative Showcase Event

26 February 2020 iCentrum, Holt Street, , Birmingham, West Midlands, B7 4BP

How can the age of digital support the challenges facing Social Care?

How will predictive analytics and Artificial Intelligence provide the data intelligence to make quicker and better decisions about resource allocation?

How will ‘big data’ help the integration agenda for Health and Social Care?


The West Midlands Digital & Data Enabled Collaborative Showcase Event will help you answer these important questions.

Join us in Birmingham on Wednesday 26th February to hear about the work of ADASS and WMAHSN who have established a region-wide health and social care partnership to drive improvement through the use of technology and data.

You will also hear about the NHS Social Care Digital Programme and how Councils in the West Midlands have been funded to develop a digital response to data analysis and intelligence.

Come along and meet the innovators and their partners, ask them about their work and the conclusions they have drawn around the potential of machine learning.

You will also be invited to join us on our journey to add your understanding to the issues and your ideas for shaping the next stage of development.

Find out how you can join the NHS Social Care Digital Programme as ‘trailblazers’ in rolling out the solution for the future.

Lunch and refreshments will provided throughout the day, along with plenty of networking opportunities.
