Digital transformation in health and care is completely reshaping how health professionals interact with each other, how data is shared among providers and how decisions are made about treatment plans and outcomes. Innovation is key, with the main goal of streamlining work, optimising systems, improving outcomes, reducing human error, and lowering costs through technological enhanced experiences. Yet the health and care sector has lagged behind the implementation of digital strategies and the impact of Covid-19 means in many ways we are just waking up to the limitations of our analogue health and care system.

This event explored how you can take part in the digital revolution and enhance good outcomes and facilitate progress. 

Speakers included:
  • Simon Minford, Advanced Paediatric Nurse Practitioner – Plastic Surgery (Trauma), Clinical Innovation Consultant – Clinical Lead for Digital, Alder Hey Children's Hospital
  • Matt Skinner, Chief Executive, FutureGov
  • Paul Fleming, Strategic Director Resources, Blackburn with Darwen Council
