The Second Annual Hospitals Conference: Innovations in facilities, services and technology 2016
Those who manage hospitals are looking for new ways of increasing efficiency, reducing running costs and improving care for patients
It is no secret that the demands on the NHS are constantly evolving. There were 41,500 patients admitted to hospital every day in England in 2015, according to the Health & Social Care Information Centre, a near 13% increase in five years. Life expectancy is increasing and an ageing population puts greater pressure on our NHS. Resources are stretched and, while the battle to increase NHS funding is fought in Westminster and Whitehall, those who manage hospitals across the UK are looking for new ways of increasing efficiency, reducing running costs and improving care for patients. Innovation and technology is the key to unlocking world class hospitals. The Department of Health has commissioned the NHS to find £22 billion in efficiency savings, as outlined in the Five Year Forward View. Hospitals face many challenges on the road to creating a more sustainable and efficient NHS.
