A week-long series of virtual seminars will take place next month to showcase digital transformation projects across the Midlands’ health and social care sectors.
Midlands Digital Health and Care Week aims to offer an opportunity for representatives from the NHS, social care, government and local authorities to hear first-hand from those delivering healthcare services and the challenges and successes they have experienced.
Sessions will focus on providing care at a distance using digital tools and the role of technology in supporting care home residents and people in the community.
Attendees will also hear from the NHS England Midlands region Digital Transformation Team on sustaining and embedding the changes made through the new ways of working brought about by COVID-19.
Tim Robinson, commercial director at East Midlands’ Academic Health Science Network (AHSN), said: “Midlands Digital Health and Care Week provides a valuable opportunity for professionals across health and care to share best practice and experiences of the implementation of digital solutions.
“During recent months we have seen the rapid introduction of new digital approaches in response to the pandemic. There are some great learnings that can be used to shape the way these digital projects and similar innovative approaches can be taken forward and effectively embedded during the restoration, recovery and reset of health and care services.”
Bookings are open for the event, which is being organised by West Midlands and East AHSNs and will take place from October 12-16.
