Event description

Description


The KTN and Innovate UK in partnership with the NIHR Colorectal Therapies Healthcare Technology Cooperative (HTC), the NIHR Leeds Diagnostic Evidence Cooperative and the Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network are pleased to announce an event to identify opportunities for addressing unmet digital health needs of healthcare services.

This meeting will focus on identifying key areas of interest for healthcare services; digital health needs of healthcare services and areas that could benefit from efficiency/effectiveness improvements. The aim is to develop collaborative research between the commercial sector, academia and clinicians, that can be used as a basis for future Innovate UK digital health funding applications.

The event will consist of presentations from:

  • Digital Health organisations on their capabilities
  • Healthcare services on the unmet needs in healthcare
  • Industry on potential solutions to address healthcare needs
  • NIHR infrastructure and support that is available to delegates

This event promises to be an exciting and challenging one, in which we will aim, through a programme of facilitated discussion, to start the process of identifying unmet clinical needs, developing new clinical/academic/industry collaborations and potential solutions.

We only have half a day in which to achieve this and it would therefore be extremely valuable if, prior to the event, you would consider some of the current challenges you face in your own environment ready to pose to colleagues on the day.

If you have any questions prior to the event, please do not hesitate to contact Vee Mapunde, NIHR Colorectal Therapies HTC Programme Manager (v.mapunde@leeds.ac.uk or 0113 2065256) and we very much look forward to seeing you on the 24th November.


Guidance for delegates

Clinicians: Please consider all the different working environments (the outpatient clinic, the ward round, pre-assessment, operating theatre, endoscopy etc) and the interdisciplinary interactions (pathology, radiology, diagnostics, pharmacy etc.) that you have and reflect on:

  • What frustrates you;
  • What prevents effective working;
  • What the knowledge gaps are;
  • How processes might be made more effective;
  • Where patient care might be improved or made safer;
  • Conditions associated with poor outcomes;
  • Conditions particularly amenable to scientific innovation.

Academics: Please consider your current engagement with digital healthcare and your research portfolio and reflect on:

  • Possibilities for further collaboration;
  • Novel technologies that might be applied to the clinical environment;
  • The design requirements for digital health
  • Existing technologies that might be applied to healthcare

Commercial partners: Please consider your current portfolios in digital health and reflect on

  • Potential gaps in the market within healthcare;
  • Areas where academic collaboration might expand current interests;
  • Examples where academic/clinical/commercial collaboration have been previously successful
  • Possibilities for existing technologies/products to be applied to healthcare

Patient and Public: Please consider your experience and how reflect on the following questions:

  • What is it that patients really want?
  • What are the main issues in terms of diagnosis, treatment and quality of life?
  • What prevents/hinders normal function and life-style?
  • What are the financial implications of current inefficiencies and how might these be minimized etc.
  • What ‘pie in the sky’ new technology developments could improve the patient experience?
