About the Convention
Technology Enabled Care sounds like a complicated subject, we understand that with so many possibilities and areas to explore the landscape can be intimidating. However, all it really boils down to is using technology in an innovative way to solve complex problems and place people at the heart of our goals. Local development is moving at an astonishing rate - this convention aims connect, inform, and celebrate those that are making a difference in the world of technological innovation.
Transformation of services is happening across all sectors, the key to making that transition as pleasant as possible is partnership. Working together, sharing knowledge, developing new ideas that help improve the services we provide and use.
If you are interested in advances in technology, the Internet of Things, or the developments in this field at a local and national level – please come along and take part.
This year we have attracted some incredibly interesting speakers; it’s not to be missed.
Come and see some of the innovations, talk to people from the Health & Social Care Partnership, local voluntary organisations and commercial companies.
This is a great opportunity to find out more about what technology can do for you, your patients or the people you care for.
Entry is free, but please book a ticket as this will be a popular event.
Look forward to seeing you..
The DVA team.
