Intergrated Digital Care: An Information Revolution

Feb 10. till Feb 10.

With guest speaker: Julia Manning, CEO, 2020health

Integrated Digital Care: An Information Revolution will support NHS leaders and staff in making better use of information and technology, potentially saving the service billions of pounds a year and integrating services around patient needs.

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has set a target for the NHS to be paperless by 2018. The first step is to give people online access to their health records by 2015. By 2018 crucial health information should be available to staff at the touch of a button. According to a study by PriceWaterCooper a revolution in information technology could result in £4.4bn of savings that could be reinvested back into the NHS.

How can health providers plan to make information digitally and securely available? And how can some of the previous pitfalls, such as technical problems and contracting, be best avoided? At Integrated Digital Care: An Information Revolution key speakers and stakeholders will outline the vision for a modern NHS and how world-class information systems can help deliver world-class services.
