Digital Solutions in Reading

Healthcare Leader Forum: Digital Solutions will provide a vital insight into the role that technology and innovation will play in enabling regional transformation partnerships and local plans.

The NHS must adapt to keep up with the expectations of patients and clinicians in the way that they access services and information. With growing demands for 24/7 services, shared records and more efficient use of information, existing systems are fast becoming outdated. Many STPs have pledged significant investment in new technologies to drive efficiency and improve quality for both patients and clinicians. These events will explore how technology is changing the way care is delivered and how patients interact with the health service, as well as bringing together key partners to deliver this redesign.
