The Executive Leadership Summit brings together senior NHS and industry leaders to explore the biggest issues in healthcare IT.

Our attendees are made up of CIOs and CCIOs in the NHS, leaders from NHS England and NHS Digital and health IT innovators from industry.

Together, they work through a packed agenda designed to maximise learning opportunities and ignite debate around current and future priorities in health IT. 

The exclusive, invite-only event gives delegates:

  • a full day of learning, networking and expert-led workshops 

  • and unrivalled forum to meet and share ideas with key influencers and leaders in healthcare/NHS IT 

  • a working lunch

Tickets to attend Executive Leadership Summit are free for NHS colleagues.

The summit on 22 March will once again bring delegates carefully chosen presentations and workshops with a sharp focus on the leadership challenges of the CIO and CCIO community.

Data-driven transformation: opportunities and challenges   

Extracting knowledge and insight from vast amounts of data is seen as the biggest enabler to the transformation of health and care. As we move closer to regional and population-based health and care, data is more important than ever in driving the prevention agenda, in understanding the health needs of our populations, measuring the impact of new care models and eliminating barriers to integrated care.

What’s less clear is what good looks like and how we tackle deep seated challenges such as privacy and the lack of a single shared data platform. The Executive Leadership Summit in March 2018 will explore these issues, hearing from national leaders setting the data agenda, local innovators and suppliers that are showing what’s possible across the health system.

    "HIMSS events have an element of prestige associated with them. ELS is known for being a great place to share thoughts and best practice amongst likeminded CIOs. The networking and dinner element was really unique from a peer to peer perspective."
