About the Forum

The drive towards digital transformation of health and care services in Scotland is already leading to system wide service redesign, led by digital experts across the country armed with the final version of the Digital Health and Social Care Strategy, plans are in place to target projects that are successful on a local basis to be scaled up nationally at speed.

To support this constantly developing agenda, we're pleased to be holding three Digital Health & Care Events over the next 12 months. Two focused on specific key topics, Interoperability and Data Led Service Redesign, the final event of the series is our well known Digital Health & Care Conference & Awards.

20th November 2018 - Digital Health & Care: Data Led Service Redesign

Scottish Government has pledged in the new digital strategy that “We will begin work now to deliver a Scottish health and care 'national digital platform' through which relevant real-time data and information from health and care records, and the tools and services they use, is available to those who need it, when they need, wherever they are, in a secure and safe way.”

The opportunities that come from effective use of data are huge, empowering citizens and care providers to make better decisions, create efficiencies and importantly spark innovation of new technology that can improve outcomes. 

The conference will provide a vital opportunity for health and care providers to further understand how the use of data can improve the delivery of services, empower patients and their families whilst creating important cost savings for providers.

Conference Format

Co-designed with speakers, delegates and suppliers, we've created a fully interactive approach that will enable delegates to engage more, share examples of success and to develop relationships and partnerships with colleagues from the industry with a view to improving interoperability of emerging technology.
Key Note Speakers & Case Study Presentations
Throughout the course of the day, delegates will hear a number of interactive presentations which showcase examples of success. The aim of the case study presentations is to demonstrate what is possible and to identify transferable benefits that can be applied in your organisation. 
Data Led Service Redesign - Panel Session:
An interactive session focused on the positive impact of effective use of data on improving health and care services across Scotland. Discussion will focus on how to scale these examples up on a national level, what elements of their approach can be replicated and applied in other health and care settings. Our panellists have been at the heart of these projects and will share key insights into how they achieved their objectives to date, how this can be replicated and what mistakes to avoid. 
Themed Panel Sessions:
An opportunity for delegates to have focused discussion on specific areas of data led service redesign. Our themed interactive panel sessions give delegates a chance to break into smaller groups to share ideas, learn from colleagues and to overcome challenges.

Knowledge Exchange Workshops. Parallel Sessions led by Public Sector Speakers

Discussing the biggest data challenges facing health and care providers, delegates will have the chance to bounce ideas between the group that could overcome the issues and will be challenged to reach a conclusion by the end of the session.

Successful use of Data - 10 Minute Lightning Presentations

A high paced end to the day, delegates will get an insight into examples of data best practice. This session is focused on practical examples, projects that you can look to replicate in your organisations. The outcomes from this session should influence your strategic approach to use of data.
