Digital technologies are transforming the way in which health and care is delivered. They have played a crucial role in enabling the delivery of services during the pandemic and are set to continue to play a pivotal role in the design, delivery and innovation of health and care going forward.

This event will take a deep dive into the practical implementation of digital solutions in health and care. We will explore how data insights and technology are being used to improve care, access and user experience against the backdrop of the impact of Covid-19.

Sessions will also provide an opportunity to assess how a range of digital tools from simple to complex can be used to innovate service design, support integration, improve population health management, and reduce health inequalities, touching on implications for staff and patients.

Due to be held in-person later this year, our Digital health and care congress provides an established forum for health and care professionals to come together and learn from successful adoptions and practical implementations of digital health and care.

Event topics

Join peers, leaders in the sector and experts from The King’s Fund to explore:

  • using digital services to enable successful integration  developing integrated digital systems within integrated care systems and improving interoperability to address fragmented care
  • putting user experience at the heart of the design of digital systems, and working to mitigate against the impact of digital exclusion on health inequalities
  • the role of technology in meeting the wider challenges facing the NHS as it gets to grip with the elective care backlog and the impact of Covid-19
  • the opportunities offered by innovation in digital technology to those working in health and care – such as the use of artificial intelligence, virtual and remote health tools, robotics and automated process management, and 5G
  • developing the digital skills of staff across health and care, and supporting them to deliver data-driven solutions on the ground
  • how technology is being used in social and community care to innovate service delivery including through the use of remote monitoring to enable care at home.

The King's Fund is an independent charitable organisation working to improve health and care in England. Our events are a key source of income, and this income enables us to continue with our charitable objectives. 

There are costs associated with running in-person conferences such as venue, catering and promotional materials to name a few. We also have a team of dedicated events professionals, content experts, and digital, marketing and finance support that work on these events. Given these costs it is sometimes necessary to charge for attendance at an in-person event, to ensure we can deliver a high-quality event experience. Any profit that is made from these events goes directly towards achieving our strategic priorities. You can find out more about how we are funded here.

We offer a limited number of bursary places for people with lived experience to ensure a balance of voices in the room. To apply for a bursary place please email us a short paragraph explaining why you wish to attend.
