Description

BusinessCloud’s conference, Can technology save the NHS?, in association with Chorley Council will hear from the innovators and share stories of where technology has improved patient care.

It will also hear directly from patients who have benefited through technology and look at whether the Government’s 10-year strategy to transform the NHS is achievable or just political rhetoric.

Who should attend?
Innovators
NHS providers e.g. CIO/CCIO, digital leads, digital pioneers and exemplar practices etc.
NHS Commissioners
Tech infrastructure providers
Local authorities
Patient groups

The NHS has never been under more pressure. With a long list of issues from an ageing population to a workforce crisis putting unprecedented pressure on the health service, technology has been identified as the panacea to fix it.

The government has outlined a 10-year strategy to transform the NHS with technology identified as a solution to improve patient services and save money in the process.

AI technology can already help diagnose acute conditions and provide insights into treatments and prevention. Voice assistants, video consultations, health apps, chatbots and wearable tech have all got a part to play.

Innovation is crucial in transforming healthcare which is why BusinessCloud is publishing a list of the UK’s top 101 HealthTech Innovators but how do entrepreneurs with a great idea get the NHS to sit up and listen?

The Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) has gone some way to getting health and care organisations to better access and exchange electronic information but does it go far enough?

These are some of the topics that will be addressed at the conference on 6th June.
