Description


What are the opportunities for suppliers in health and care?

Leeds has a bold vision for digital health and care in our city and we’d like to share it with you! We’d also like to tell you how this fits with related work across Yorkshire and Humber. This event is for digital health and technology companies to get up to date with the latest on the city and regional plans and find out where your products and services might fit.

Chaired by Anne Cooper, Non Executive Director at Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust, this special supplier-focused event is introduced by Alastair Cartwright, Director of Informatics at Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group, who will share the overall vision for the city. Lee Rickles, Yorkshire and Humber Care Record Programme Director, will share regional developments including a personal health record for citizens and will touch on themes such as open standards and the regional technology blueprint.

You will see examples of work with industry partners, collaborating with health and social care in the city. You will also hear about a whole host of local initiatives, including our Innovation Labs through the Smart Cities programme, ALL INN codesign with people with specific conditions, the DHAT research and innovation hub and Co>Space North.

There will be plenty of informal time for networking and to speak with senior health and social care leaders and decision makers. Come along and become part of our city’s vision for health and care services enabled by digital!

100% Digital Leeds is the health and care theme of the Leeds Digital Festival #LDF19.

Curated by mHabitat on behalf of the city, 100% Digital Leeds bring together international, national and local perspectives on current digital themes in health and care. From the ethics of AI, through to how we use personal data and the impact of social media on vulnerable teens, our events aim to stimulate debate and shine a light on the great stuff happening in our city. We are delighted to have BJSS as our headline sponsor at #LDF19 and we are also grateful to our individual event sponsors in helping make #100DigitalLeeds #LDF19 happen.

Most of our #100DigitalLeeds events will be run from the recently launched Co>Space North – a collaboration and co-working space on the fifth floor of Platform in the heart of the city. At Co>Space North we are creating a community of makers and doers passionate about digital health and tech for good. Anyone signing up to be a member of Co>Space North during the two week festival period gets their first month membership for free! Email us at cospacenorth@wearemhabitat.com to find out more and get involved.

Our city’s Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2016-2021 sets out a clear vision that ‘Leeds will be a healthy and caring city for all ages, where people who are the poorest improve their health the fastest’. This includes maximising the benefits from information and technology as a key priority. The health and wellbeing strand of the Digital Festival is a celebration of the diverse and innovative work taking place to help us achieve our shared, bold ambition for Leeds to be the best city for health and wellbeing.LCC Health and wellbeing
