    Panel Q&A

  • Workshops: Part One

    -

    Facilitator:
    Gareth Thomas, Deputy National CCIO, NHSX

    Workshop One: Digital and staff burn-out
    How do digital systems and solutions and poor UX currently have a detrimental impact on NHS staff, contributing to stress, frustration and burn-out? What measures are required to ensure that UX and user-centred design is always central to thinking how digital systems, services and experiences are designed, developed and delivered, rather than an after-thought?

  • Workshops: Part One

    -

    Facilitators:
    Mark Kenny, Digital Strategic Transformation Lead and Head of Healthtech, Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS FT
    Jenny Thomas, Programme Director, Digitalhealth.London
    Workshop Two: Building a digital innovation capability
    Top performing organisations often have a dedicated digital innovation team, an in-house team or capability focused on ensuring the organisation is constantly exploring how continuously experimenting with and trialling a diverse range of digital innovations and emerging technologies can help the organisation more effectively achieve its goals. This workshop will explore how successful NHS organisations are developing these capabilities.

  • Workshops: Part One

    -

    Facilitators:
    Natasha Phillips, CNIO, NHSX
    Jo Dickson, Chief Nurse, NHS Digital
    Ronke Adejolu, Associate CNIO, NHSX

    Workshop Three: Why every nurse is a digital nurse
    With over 300,000 nurses in the NHS, nurses are the largest group of staff using digital technologies and data in their everyday practice. Nurses, midwives and AHPS are also often the most intensive users of EPRs to record patient notes and observations. This workshop will explore the potential digital future of nursing, in which staff move from being users of systems to increasingly using digital tools and data to re-imagine patient care.

  • Coffee & Networking Break

    -

    Location: Sky Loft

  • Workshops: Part Two

    -

    Facilitator:
    Sonia Patel, CIO, NHSX

    Workshop One: How to grow digital skills at scale
    The challenge of achieving a health and care workforce with the skills required to make maximum use of digital tools and data have long been identified. There have been notable successes, such as the NHS Digital Academy, but a step-change is still required to ensure that the entire workforce becomes equipped with the range of skills, many of them new, required to provide digital-first services. This workshop will explore what is required to accelerate and sustain the development of a highly digitally skilled NHS workforce.

  • Workshops: Part Two

    -

    Facilitator:
    Neil Bennett, CISO, NHS Digital (tbc)

    Workshop Two: Emerging threats to digital health and care
    For all its unquestioned potential, the rapid digitisation of health and care creates significant new risks. As professionals, patients and providers all become utterly reliant on digital systems, ensuring the availability and reliability of those systems, and securing them from cyber security threats becomes more important than ever. With far more patient identifiable data being generated and shared, ensuring governance, privacy and consent is also essential. This workshop will explore what are the key emerging threats to digital health and care and how to mitigate these threats.

  • Workshops: Part Two

    -

    Facilitators:
    Dave Turner, CTO, NHSX
    Ruth Bradbury, Senior NHS Navigator, Digitalhealth.London

    Workshop Three: Horizon-scanning; surfing the tsunami
    NHS digital leaders, and in particular CIOs and CTOs, must make sense of bewildering and fast-changing technology and policy landscapes. They have to often sustain many legacy core systems while identifying what are the future technologies and approaches they should base future strategies on. In a technology sector that is notoriously fond of hype how can digital leaders plans for the future and surf these tsunamis of change.
