Event description

Description

We are delighted to invite you to join us for the 4th annual Sowerby Symposium, to be held at the British Medical Association House. Chaired by Professor Lord Ara Darzi, the conference will discuss the digital transformation of the NHS, exploring the practical challenges that lay ahead as we seek to embed innovative technology in healthcare.

The symposium will include keynote and panel discussions addressing:

  • Developing leaders for Digital Transformation in the NHS

  • Developing the evidence base for a digital NHS

  • Patient input and co-production of digital technology

  • Challenges of communicating data sharing to the public

Full agenda, speakers and further info to follow.

Submission of abstracts, Deadline: Wed 30th August 2017

You are warmly invited to submit an abstract for participation in the event.

As these efforts are maturing and scaling up across the country, we invite submissions from academics, innovators, patients, practitioners, and partners who are able to describe their experience on the digital transformation of health care and its benefits and challenges. We consider benefits first from the patient perspective, including better outcomes and better experience with care. We welcome submissions focused on any use case, but would particularly encourage those who have experience in the below areas to share their experience for the benefit of others on the same journey:

  • Patient-controlled or patient-accessible electronic health records

  • Shared care plans across multiple sites of care

  • Community care for chronic disease

  • Integrated information for integrated care

  • Medications management\

  • Telemonitoring and virtual wards

  • Advanced analytics on joined-up datasets

Please submit a summary of 200 words or less to sowerby@imperial.ac.uk, being sure to include a brief introduction and the aims of the work, followed by the main results and discussion. Submissions will be peer-reviewed and successful submissions invited to present.

We hope the symposium will promote your work and provide a platform for a deeper debate and better understanding of the digital transformation of NHS from the perspective of the patient, clinician and policymaker. You can find out more about the 2016 symposium here.

We hope you can join us for what promises to be a truly multi-disciplinary and exciting meeting.
