The Digital Health Conference 2017 : Working with STPs
“It’s essential that information technology across the NHS works well and can perform the tasks needed to deliver high quality, safe and efficient care.” – Professor Bob Wachter
Just 2% of patients have had any form digital interaction with NHS services indicating that the healthcare sector has fallen behind when it comes to exploiting new technology. As a result, opportunities are being missed to connect with the 71% of UK adults who have a smartphone and the 84% of those who use the internet regularly.
As organisations work towards the aims set out in sustainability and transformation plans (STPs), new technology offers the chance to improve health outcomes, boost efficiency and give patients more of a say in their own care.
The Digital Health Summit will explore the latest innovations being adopted by NHS organisations across the country and give delegates the tools they need to transform their organisation’s approach to technology. Expect to hear from Bernard Quinn, director of improvement programmes at NHS Improvement and Daniel Hallen, head of digital technology at NHS England North.

Topics covered on the day will include:
- Which areas of NHS digital technology are in most need of investment?
- How would better digital interaction transform the patient experience?

Health Apps- the Good the Bad and the Ugly!
Liz Ashall-Payne, CEO, ORCHA (The Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Applications)
Let’s face it, technology is playing an increasing role in all our lives. The public is using health apps to improve fitness levels, manage complex conditions and to motivate and sustain behaviour change. Clinicians and care providers are increasingly, ‘prescribing’ apps as an integral part of the service they offer. But, whilst Mobile apps offer the promise of connecting millions of patient to immediate care, they also present risks and security vulnerabilities. Without universal standards to guide development, the landscape can seem both chaotic and confusing.
