Northern Ireland Ecosystem March Gathering
Wed 23 March 2016, 09:30 – 14:00 GMT
The theme for this meeting will be “Digital Health & Community based Care Delivery – new models/new skills!”
The focus on Community based care is intensifying as care commissioners across the UK and Ireland seek to reduce hospital admissions, speed up hospital discharge and accelerate the use of self-management.
Despite this groundswell of interest in Community Based Care there has been limited change to the service models, activities or technology required to deliver the needed care for today or the expected increases for tomorrow. In addition, the new found focus on the community is frequently not translating to what a patient values or needs.
A change is needed to the activities, infrastructures, skills and the role of the patient, but it is unclear what this new model should look like. This event will explore the changes necessary to allow community based care to deliver against expectation.
