Day 1 - 3 May

Theatre 3

11.00 – 12.30 Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health
The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) is responsible for training and examining paediatricians. The College has over 17,000 members in the UK and internationally and sets standards for professional and postgraduate education. We work to transform child health through knowledge, research and expertise, to improve the health and wellbeing of infants, children and young people across the world.

Title of session: Informatics for quality – transitioning child health into the digital age

Chair: Dr Sebastian Yuen, Consultant Paediatrician, George Eliot Hospital, Nuneaton

The future of child health information systems

David Low will present NHS England’s new child health digital strategy Healthy Children: transforming child health information and outline the NHS Digital programme to support that. This will transform child health information services to allow better monitoring of child health and improved access to information, where appropriate, to ensure that all children get the best possible start in life. It will result in new information services for parents and young people, professionals and public health.

Dr David Low, Clinical Advisor to Child Protection Information Sharing Project [CP-IS] and Digital Child Health

Improving the quality of care: making sense of the Atlas of Variation 

The Atlas of Variation in Healthcare uses information to drive change in healthcare delivery. This session will focus on the importance of using variation analysis to improve value and quality in healthcare for children and young people.

Dr Ronny Cheung, Consultant Paediatrician, Evelina London Children’s Hospital,
Editor, NHS Atlas of Variation in Healthcare for Children & Young People,
Clinical Advisor, Child & Maternal Health Intelligence Network, Public Health England

SNOMED-CT and the future of clinical records
Clinical coding improves the functionality of clinical systems. In particular, SNOMED CT can provide a detailed and understandable record of clinical data. If fully implemented, SNOMED-CT can also improve the capability to; conduct high quality audits, health services evaluations, and research. This session will focus on; the importance of using SNOMED-CT to deliver quality care for children and young people, and the contribution of the UK Terminology Centre to paediatric clinical coding projects

13.30 – 16.00 One HealthTech 
One HealthTech is non-profit networking community committed to bringing together and empowering women across healthcare and technology.

Introduction and welcome to the network
Maxin e Mackintosh, Co-founder, One HealthTech
Louise Sinclair, Co-founder, One HealthTech

Cross generational healthtech
Dr Mary E Black is from Public Health England and is a tech entrepreneur and an accomplished conference presenter.  We have asked her to do a 3 generational presentation alongside her mother Dr Margaret Black  (a 91 year old retired anaesthetist and health user now) and her niece Dr Ciara Walker who is a junior doc currently during a neurosurgery residency in Melbourne (via video). The talk will cover intergenerational approaches to tech / how assumptions shouldn’t be made about patients and how tech is a family issue as often it’s not just the patients who are using it. This will be a pretty unique talk!

Title of second session: HealthTech Women Collaborathon
introduction by Beverley Bryant, Director of Digital Transformation, NHS Digital
Problem Definition pitches and technology demos (15 mins)

The One HealthTech ambassadors will open the collaborathon with a 2 minute pitch each, on a problem they want to solve. It can be a pathway, process, experience, device, condition, you name it!

Key points to include in problem definition:

  1. Clearly define the problem in a way that is accessible to individuals from a broad range of backgrounds
  2. Describe the burden, extent of problem and why it is such an important problem to solve
  3. Outline the current solution in place, or the status quo depending on what is applicable
  4. Flag key considerations to take into account when designing a solution

Technology demos (10 mins)

Each collaborathon station will have a “Technology Inspiration”. The purpose of this is to create a new innovative solution to the problems articulated by the ambassadors, using a new piece of technology. Each of the Technology Inspirations will be introduced by our partners with a 2 minute demo, including capabilities and current uses.
The One HealthTech ambassadors will then be asked to randomly select a technology as provided by the session supporters and the problem & technology pairings will be defined e.g. Adolescent mental health in rural areas + VR headset. 5 minutes to find a project
Sprint 1: Warm up, brainstorm & refine (25 mins)

  • Warm up: Group exercise to get everyone comfortable, open, energised
  • Brainstorm: The brainstorm session will be based on the individual rather than the group. Participants are encouraged to defer judgement and embrace mad ideas. The focus is on quantity. Each participant should aim to generate at least 15 ideas
  • Refine: Participants select their top 3 ideas (Selection suggestion: Whackiest, most viable, most future proof) and write them on a post-it to be shared with the group
  • Refine: Members of the group each marks their 3 favourite ideas
  • Refine2: Each member selects their top idea – Final solution chosen

Sprint 2: Business model canvas & pitch prep (25 mins)

Each group puts together a reduced Business Model Canvas (facilitated) and refines 3 minute pitches. Pitches are encouraged to include paper prototypes, role play or demonstration of technology.
Pitch and judging (15 mins)
Each group pitches their solution as networking drinks are beginning. Judges to announce winners at 16:00.
Winners announced at networking drinks at 16:00
