  • What tools, technologies or approaches to transformation have the real potential to improve health and care outcomes and how do we harness them appropriately to deliver ROI?
  • What problems in healthcare must be addressed to scale access and adoption of data-driven technology to improve patient outcomes?
  • How to ensure policy, guidance and funding are fit for purpose to enable truly connected, integrated, person-centred care

STREAM 1: How digital is enabling integrated care


Healthcare is facing challenges in both recruiting into the sector and equipping the staff it does have with the digital skills they need:

  • What are the skills gaps and what does good look like?
  • Technologies for care: The imperative for upskilling carers
  • How much are we committed to investing in the workforce? 
  • How do we retain staff once we’ve invested in digital upskilling and career development?
  • How do we make a career in health and care more compelling and competitive – how do we attract digital talent?

The Lancashire and South Cumbria Shared Care Record is a comprehensive Shared Care Record, which integrates health and social care organisations across Cumbria and Lancashire. We’ll hear how it’s enabling better care outcomes for people no matter which part of the health and care system they use.

Regulation and reimbursement are key to the adoption and implementation of digital health technologies. In addition, the technologies must be equitable and easy to adopt by the workforce and patients – important challenges to adoption include a change of culture, digital literacy, and incentives. Many countries have been slow to update legislation and guidance for this relatively new field in healthcare and struggled with the challenges: data security and privacy, interoperability.
