Unplugged stage

10.20 - 10.35  The consequences of data security breaches and garner erasure solutions

NHS facilities go to great lengths to protect their data from network intrusions, hacking, viruses, and theft. However, many fail to protect against the disastrous consequences of data security breaches from media that they thought was deleted or erased. Various trusts have already been fined by the ICO over the loss of sensitive information and the maximum fine for Data Protection Act breaches is currently £500,000. Garner are the industry leaders in data elimination products that deliver complete, permanent, and verifiable data elimination.  Their products ensure your data is unrecoverable.

Speakers: Richard Kemp, Field Sales Director, AGX Holdings Ltd

10.40 - 10.55   Cultural interoperability
Interoperability projects aim to help partners to work together more productively. You’ve got the technology nailed, but people don’t have API’s. How can you manage the cultural aspects of interoperability programmes?

Speaker: David Laszlo, Director, David Laszlo Partnership

11.00 - 11.15   How monitoring the health of your IT can directly improve the health of your patients.

In this session, we will take a brief look at how PRTG can help save lives by alerting system administrators and network managers to IT related issues before they impact patients. Maintaining uptime in a healthcare scenario is more critical than in most other industries and keeping pace with modern technology is not always easy. Using healthcare-specific protocols and sensors, PRTG can effectively be that vital extra team member IT Managers have always needed.

Speakers: Joseph Waller, Director, XML Solutions

12.00 - 12.30   The Journey to a Paperless Hospital: Why Medication Management is the Key.
Did you know that the average hospitalised patient is subjected to at least one medication error per day?

Healthcare is a complex environment. Modern healthcare IT solutions can help reduce errors and improve patient safety. However, for these solutions to really work, they must be simple to use, have exceptional UI/UX, and need to leverage all other modern IT technologies. Medical teams are very agile and constantly on the go, which means that anyone working with a patient needs to be able to access all key information – anytime and anywhere.

Transforming a hospital into a paperless one is a journey. One of the most complex areas to be supported by IT is medication management. If done right, it can have significant impact on overall patient safety. For the last 5 years, we have worked tirelessly with a group of clinicians, nurses, and clinical pharmacists from Slovenia and NHS to develop an innovative and comprehensive medication management system – OPENeP.

OPENeP is simple, powerful, engaging, and streamlines coordination for medical teams, all of which helps them make more informed decisions, thus improving patient safety.
During the talk, I will share how we managed to quickly and effortlessly transition all the wards (including PICU and neonatal ICU) of the biggest children’s hospital in Slovenia to paperless medication management, and how we supported them in their journey to become a paperless hospital.

Speaker: Mr Anze Droljc, Product Manager, Marand

14.40 - 14.55  Paperless agenda through patient flow
Stuart Rankin, Founder of Cayder will take you on a light hearted but thought provoking journey suggesting why paper lite is the new paper free.

He’s definitely not going to discuss products either. 

Speaker: Stuart Rankin, Founder, Cayder

15.00 - 15.15   Matching clinical trials with patients: global EHR based patient recruitment
Slow patient recruitment is the number one reason for clinical trial delays. Reliably identifying suitable patients is key to timely recruitment, as is catching them quickly as they arrive at hospitals. These problems could be solved by using real-time patient data from hospital EHR records. However, such data are spread across multiple hospitals and different EHR systems, and data protection concerns further complicate central aggregation of data from multiple sources. Clinerion’s Patient Recruitment System is an innovative solution that overcomes these issues and establishes a multi-hospital EHR data driven patient recruitment network.

Speaker: Tigran Arzumanov, Head of Sales, Clinerion

15.20 - 15.35   Measurable results: Achieving digital patient communication
Improving patient communications by going digital.
