New technologies are invigorating the hospital, impacting everything from how doctors access data to how they engage and treat their patients. As new products emerge to drive better care, we selected the companies and leaders in health IT that will dramatically impact workflow, patient-provider communication, and new EHR solutions fueling innovation and providing opportunities for more connected care.
Alongside the NHS, Health 2.0 explored how public health players can create a new landscape for interoperability by leveraging a system built on open source.
As the digital health landscape grows into a billion Euro market, and with the NHS being notoriously choosy, some bright ideas have experienced great success while many others have been turned away at the hospital door. Learn how to get your platform in front of the right players and land a successful pilot program.
Tim Kelsey’s keynote, “Personalised Health and Care 2020: Using Data and Technology to Transform Outcomes for Patients and Citizens” examined how better use of technology has the power to transform the quality and costs of health and care services, and the work currently underway by the NHS to giving people ownership of ALL their own medical data.
Tim Kelsey opened with a Keynote before Health 2.0 Netherlands chapter leader Eugene Borukhovich kicked off our data panel. He spoke with experts and showed demos that frame national, entrepreneurial, and patient-based efforts to create open data portals and increase access across the spectrum.
With 1.7 million workers across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, the NHS is one of the world’s largest employers. The opportunities for entrepreneurs to be part of the next version of the NHS are real, but the private sector often does not have access to the right people to understand its agenda and rules of engagement. In this session, Tracey and Alex will share essential orientation keys and their one-year plan to open the NHS for business.
Throughout Health 2.0 Europe we were hearing growing reference to the silicon valley of Europe. During “Financing Health 2.0” speakers addressed where the future of health care innovation is happening in Europe and what investors are looking at in their decisions to fund upcoming projects.
Tim Kelsey and Geraint Lewis of NHS England gave a call to action in their double keynote this November in London, England. Kelsey examined how data has the power to articulate the patient voice to make England’s health care system safer and more sustainable. Lewis followed Kelsey to show the audience how Care.Data, a new data driven program will address the shortcomings of England’s HES, Hospital Episode Statistics, program. With Care.Data’s implementation, patient data will be collected from all providers of NHS health care to create a complete history and this information will be easily accessible to patients. The hope is that Care.Data will allow patients, providers, innovators, and entrepreneurs with the ability to analyze health patterns, audit hospital quality and prevention programs, investigate outbreaks, compare health statistics, and describe outcomes to make England a healthier and more empowered country.
