NHS Digital
NHS digital improves and provides national information, data and IT services for patients, clinicians, commissioners and researchers. Our goal is to improve health and social care in England by making better use of technology, data and information.

11.00 - 12.30  Providing digital health services citizens want and need

Every part of the health and social care system is tackling the triple successes of an aging population, ever more effective and diverse services, and a better informed customer. However, demand outstrips capacity and inequalities still exist. This session will explore how employing an effective digital channel to provide citizen/patient facing services can help alleviate these pressures. We will hear how speakers from a variety of organisations are achieving digital solutions that are attractive to patients, and address their needs. We’ll end with a Q&A session.

·         The evidence and value of creating a trusted digital marketplace
·         Two/four case studies (tbc)
·         Question and answer panel with the speakers

13.30 - 15.00   Paperless 2020: a local agenda - how demographically-driven change is being supported by NHS Digital

How can local care organisations engage with and embrace the national drive towards a paperless service, in a way that offers the most benefit for their population?
This session explores how NHS Digital is supporting the paperless agenda and its newly-established programme of work in the regions, from engagement with STP areas to project support spanning inception to delivery.
