Digital technologies have transformed how health and care services are offered, accessed and used. As digital health and care services evolve, improve and become more widespread, they offer further opportunities to improve people’s health and experiences of services.
Through panel discussions, keynote speeches and interactive workshops, this event explored how to successfully adopt digital solutions in health and care to benefit both the health and care workforce and people use services, and the practical realities of implementation. Delegates had the opportunity to learn from good practice and discuss different digital technologies, such as virtual wards, artificial intelligence, the NHS app and remote monitoring. Participants also heard from health and care staff how digital solutions are being used innovatively to streamline work processes, enhance efficiency and alleviate workforce pressures, and heard from those with lived experience on how digital can improve the quality of their care through co-design and breaking barriers of exclusion and inequality.
