Unmet Needs in the Digital Transformation of Care

Are you a healthcare professional, patient or innovator interested in contributing to the digital transformation of health and social care post COVID-19?

The MedTech Navigator programme delivered by Health Enterprise East supports knowledge exchange between the NHS, academia and industry to facilitate the development of novel solutions that will improve healthcare and the patient experience.

This workshop will explore opportunities for collaborative working in healthcare IT and showcase some of the latest technological developments from industry. Health and care providers have been able to rapidly ramp up use of digital health technologies to support safe delivery of care during the coronavirus pandemic. Will these changes be sustainable as routine care re-starts? 

Key themes to be explored include:  

  • Primary care digital transformation 
  • Managing outpatients through remote consultations
  • Setting up and running virtual clinics
  • Empowering individuals to self-care
  • Integrating care locally

The event will feature presentations from clinicians who will share their major clinical challenges and unmet needs related to the digital transformation of care. Delegates will also hear from companies at the forefront of developing innovative digital health solutions including mHealth, wearable devices, telehealth and telemedicine.
