Integrated care – how can technology help? Royal Society of Medicine 24 & 25 November

This year the Royal Society of Medicine’s Telemedicine & eHealth Section’s conference, on 24th & 25th November, is on how technology can support integrated care.

The conference will be opened by Cathy Hassell, Deputy Director, Quality Programmes, NHS England, who manages the NHS Technology Enabled Care Services (TECS) programme

Other keynote speakers include:

Tim Kelsey, National Director for Patients and Information, NHS

Dr Robert Wah, President, American Medical Association

Adam Darkins, Chief Consultant in Care Coordination Services, Department of Veterans Affairs, US

There is a superb line-up of speakers to inform you about the many aspects of using technology to support the effective and efficient delivery of care services. These range from practical integrated care implementations such as that underway in Bradford (presented by Cath Doman) and Airedale (presented by Anne Wagner), through the use of innovative technology such as Big White Wall (presented by Jen Hyatt) to the contributions that different organisations can make such as NWC AHSN (presented by Liz Mear). We will hear directly from one of the Integration Pioneers (presented  by Tim Straughan) as well as how other countries are tackling the topic (in addition to the USA covered by Robert Wah & Adam Darkins, Dr Klaas Pedersen will present on how Denmark is delivering integrated care). The need to engage patients in such innovations will be covered by presentations from both Michael Seres & Mark Duman. There are many more equally qualified speakers on the agenda.

Because the Royal Society of Medicine is a charity devoted to medical education & medical advances, it is able to offer delegate rates that, for this quality of speakers, are far lower even than other institutions let alone commercial organisations, particularly now whilst the ‘earlybird’ rates are still on offer.

Anyone interested is therefore urged to book as soon as possible, here!
