Join world-leading digital health experts and technologists from Scotland, Estonia and Finland as they gather together for FutureScot's Health & Social Care 2017 - a one-day conference focusing on how advances in digital technology can help deliver better outcomes for adults and children as we chart our own course towards health and social care integration in Scotland.

Learn from international policy-makers and clinical leads as they describe how they embarked on the massive and disruptive transformational change within their health and social care systems - helping not only their citizens to benefit from a more user-focused approach but also how they managed and motivated staff through the transition.

Listen to experts as they discuss what problem-solving and project management skills are required by leaders of change to deliver resilient, scaleable and ultimately easy-to-use digital tools and products to engender successful digital transformation within their organisations.

Hear how sound research, design and testing principles which put the user at the heart of the digital transformation process can help deliver better results and mitigate risk on contracts with solutions architects.

This is a once-a-year, must-attend event for health experts, clinicians, policy-makers and social care professionals in the private, local government and third sectors in Scotland.


The Scottish Government is developing a new, integrated Digital Health and Social Care Strategy that will build on the achievements of the last 10 years and set out future developments and priorities based on the legislative changes that saw the creation of 31 Integrated Joint Boards (IJBs) in 2016.  The new Strategy is moving towards further integration of health and social care with local government and third sector partners and is planned to be published towards the end of 2017.

Why attend?

With digital transformation at the heart of health and social care integration Health & Social Care 2017 will, through a range of plenary sessions and workshops, explore and debate the developments surrounding the use of technology by clinicians and healthcare providers including:

  • How to galvanise the workforce in the spirit of change
  • How to design solutions that work
  • How to mitigate risk and minimise the prospect of things going wrong
  • How to put the receivers of care at the heart of the process
  • How to lose your fear of data
  • How software can help us make better decisions
