Healthcare is changing

Rising costs, changing demographics and growing consumer expectations are changing healthcare. Providers and payers are seeking better quality care and improved outcomes whilst striving for much more efficient models of delivery.  The recent reforms in the UK, the US and other countries are all part of this movement.

IT facilitates a Health Information Revolution

These pressures for transformation are changing the status of IT in healthcare as it facilitates an information revolution in healthcare. Increasingly, ICT is being used more collaboratively to support and drive substantial cultural and strategic change and provide the infrastructure, processes and tools to support this.

How to leverage technology to implement effective change?

Ovum’s Smart healthcare Summit has been developed to provide critical input for IT leaders in healthcare, providing objective, timely, evaluation of the different healthcare challenges and applications and solutions for tackling them.

The format of the event is discursive with roundtable discussions and case studies from leading CIO and Clinical Directors in healthcare providers, sharing their experiences on what works and what does not.

This conference will give you the knowledge and tools to:

  • Implement and sustain effective ICT strategies without breaking the bank
  • Maximise resources in the current financially constrained environment
  • Support real time healthcare decision making
  • Share information across health and social care institutions
  • Get in early on the mobile apps curve
  •  Better enable collaborative team working
  • Senior representatives from NHS Trusts, CSUs and CCGs, Hospital and Practice Management teams, Government bodies and local authorities
  • The event has been researched and developed for the following job functions within in UK and European healthcare providers: CCIO, CIO, CTO, CMO, Director IT, ICT Manager, Director ehealth, Director Health Information, Informatics Director, Head of Telecare  & Clinical Director
