More than 200 delegates registered for this virtual conference. We discussed how Covid-19 has transformed the delivery of health care services, bringing about unprecedented change in very little time. Changes that were thought to require years of careful planning happened in many cases overnight, with technology proving to be a key factor in supporting patients and staff in the delivery of care.

At this event, experts from the NHS and other parts of the digital health system came together to discuss the lessons from the Covid-19 pandemic. We heard the views of NHS and industry leaders who played a central role in bringing about the new digital reality for health care and explored how they managed to adapt to the pressing needs of the pandemic.


Testimonials

This conference was made very accessible during a period of lock-down. It also didn't add additional cost to my employer in terms of transport and accommodation costs. The conference could be scheduled into my working week with a catch-up facility allowing me to also be available to work colleagues. The access to resources and to networking was available - delivered virtually. No IT issues either - all ran smoothly.

Robert Moore, Technology Enabled Care Manager, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust

Really excellent event, and I found that the online format really worked for me - no distractions, no crack of dawn travel or lack of sleep in a distant hotel!  Also cost efficient because of all of those reasons. The presentations were really excellent and the ability to use Slido to ask questions and have them answered in real time really enhanced the event. Some really useful learning to take into a local digital inclusion project focusing on people living with cancer, many thanks.

Di Charlton, Engagement Lead, Macmillan Cancer Support

Excellent virtual conference which was designed to provide plenty of suitable space and head room for attendees to reflect on speakers' narrative and presentations. A really first class professional tool.
