About this event

Digitisation is an essential tool for meeting the needs of patients, their families, healthcare professionals, and the entire nation – in short, to improve the way care is delivered in the NHS. With a renewed national focus on technology and data, join us at this two-day event to hear the latest policies and learn from local case studies showcasing best practice from around the country.

Why should you attend?

You'll network with more than 500 delegates, including health and social care professionals, commissioners, researchers, innovators, and policy makers, all interested in the implementation of digital health in the NHS and other health and care systems.

With a thriving exhibition, and a choice of practical workshops, you'll see how the latest innovations in digital health, mobile health, telehealth and telecare are being used to:

  • transform how patients engage with services

  • drive improvements in efficiency and care co-ordination

  • help people manage their health and wellbeing.

Have you submitted a project?

The deadline for submissions was Friday 9th December 2016. Thank you to everyone who sent us a project.

Who will review your project?

  • Daniel Ray, Director, Data Science, NHS Digital, and Professor, Health Informatics, Farr Institute
  • Charles Lowe, Managing Director, Digital Health and Care Alliance (DHACA)
  • Matthew Honeyman, Researcher, Policy, The King's Fund
  • Joanne Harding, Director of Transformation, Shropshire Doctors Co-operative Ltd (Shropdoc)
  • Mike Clark, Managing Editor, Telecare Learning and Improvement Network
  • John Cruickshank, Partner, The IT Health Partnership
  • David Maguire, Economic and Data Analyst, Policy, The King's Fund
  • Brenda Thompson-Murray, Carer and Trustee, Carers UK
  • Jonathan Thorpe, Director, Carelab.

Each abstract will be reviewed by two different experts and their final score will be based on the combination of both reviews. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality.
