The nature of healthcare is changing. Patients have an expectation that they can access health services and care professionals when and where they need them. Services are striving to be transformational, offering services that are more integrated and personalised.
Digital innovation has the potential to help manage increasing demands on the system. Technology now allows citizens to monitor their health and activity levels by themselves through mobile apps, telehealth or wearable technology. Traditional methods of communication between clinician and patient are also changing. The growth in social media and the use of video technology and the access to high speed broadband connections and smartphones is opening up the opportunities for greater patient interaction with the healthcare system.
In the past the NHS has been accused of being slow in its adoption of effective new technologies. However, a £100 million funding pot is destined to help to drive better use of technology in pilot projects aiming to create centres of global digital excellence. If data and technology are to become embedded in everyday care it is important to build patient trust in the use of new technologies, in new working practices and in data sharing. The Department of Health’s new consultation on a opt-out and consent model aims to clarify constraints that apply to data use in the NHS and promote new digital health initiatives to improve patient outcomes.
DigiHealth UK: Enhancing the Patient's Journey will promote the best practices in digital healthcare innovation along the patient journey as well as the very latest opportunities on the horizon in the health and social care sector. This unique conference will give you the key information and knowledge to take advantage of new tools, technologies and platforms, exploring how to deliver substantial benefits to both patients and professionals alike.
