  • Expert Panel: How platform approaches can break down barriers between sectors

    Christopher Wroath
    Digital Director, NHS Education for Scotland

    Rami Okasha
    Executive Director of Strategy and Improvement, Care Inspectorate

    Overview: Integrating systems in the public more »

    Integrating systems in the public sector is hampered by the proliferation of different standards, multiple identities and sign-in requirements. Systems are often single-purpose, costly to develop and difficult for the user.

    A cloud-based approach, building open platforms into which apps can be plugged and accessed, means that users can access what they need with a single-sign-in, irrespective of which organisation or sector they work for. Using Agile methodology means that apps can be built in-house, avoiding multi-year, multi-million pound external procurement.

    Speakers from NHS Education for Scotland and the Care Inspectorate will outline the work they are leading on and discuss the implications, challenges and opportunities for the rest of the public sector.

      Overview: Given cuts to social care more »

      Given cuts to social care budgets, increasing demand from an ageing population, difficulties in recruiting staff, and insufficient time with people can technology save the care and health sector? With the intelligent use of apps can pressures be reduced on the sector to improve efficiency of case-management processes, build micro eco-systems of friends & family care around individuals in the community, and transition mixed staff groups towards truly integrated, person-centred working? And, what skills and training are required to support social care workforce to embrace the possibilities?

      Overview: The use of mobile devices more »

      The use of mobile devices by health care professionals (HCPs) has transformed many aspects of clinical practice. Mobile devices have become commonplace in health care settings, leading to rapid growth in the development of medical software applications (apps) for these platforms. Numerous apps are now available to assist HCPs with many important tasks, such as: information and time management; health record maintenance and access; communications and consulting; reference and information gathering; patient management and monitoring; clinical decision-making; and medical education and training.

      • Workshop 3C - Balancing resilient IT with the opportunities offered by digital cloud-based technologies
      Overview: Healthcare data has stringent requirements more »

      Healthcare data has stringent requirements for security, confidentiality, availability to authorized users, traceability of access, reversibility of data, and long-term preservation. Hence, cloud vendors need to account for all these while conforming to government and industry regulations. Problems in making IT systems interoperable have delayed cloud computing growth in the health care industry.

      When considering a move to cloud computing, healthcare actors (medical practices, hospitals, research facilities, etc.) need to carefully consider the type of application moving to the cloud (clinical and nonclinical applications). Clinical applications consist of EHRs, physician order entry and software for imaging and pharmacy use. Nonclinical applications include revenue cycle management, automatic patient billing, cost accounting, payroll management, and claims management.
