The King’s Fund is looking for projects to be presented at the Digital Health and Care Congress 2017.
To be accepted, projects must show progress and improvements in at least one of these areas:
- enabling patients to take an active role in their health and care;
- improving data sharing and interoperability across the health and care economy;
- demonstrating the benefits and improving productivity;
- using technology and data to improve experience and quality of care.
Acceptance is via submission of an abstract, which should not be a sales pitch. Presentations should focus on digital health and care in practice. If you’re a commercial organisation working in partnership with an NHS organisation, you should ensure your NHS partner is available to present.
Note that in a change from previous years, single speakers will not be required to pay congress fees; for projects accepted for presentation, there will be one free speaker place allocated.
More details here.
The Congress will be on 4th & 5th July 2017.
The deadline for abstract submissions is Friday 9 December 2016.
