Past workshops: Executive Leadership Summit July 2017


A channel shift: empowering citizens to manage their health and stay out of hospital

Led by Nigel Thorley, Head of Mobility, Worldline and David Karney, Health Sales, Worldline

As the NHS faces pressure to become more cost-efficient, there is a need to consider digital technology as a means to solve these challenges. This presentation will consider how the NHS can empower citizens to manage their care in a convenient and coordinated way through the digital tools that we are now familiar with in other areas of our lives.

Managing the Cyber Threat/Risk at board level

Led by Sandy Forrest, Client Executive, UK & I Cyber Security, ATOS

The nature, complexity and sophistication of the cyber threat continues to develop, resulting in a fast changing risk profile which has to be seen in context of each individual organisation and considered along with the other risks it faces. The presentation will consider recent developments in the threat and available controls along with the changes in approach that are needed to respond effectively and manage the risk properly.

The journey to cognitive imaging

Led by Phil Colbourne, Director – Healthcare EMEA, Watson Health Imaging – an IBM company

Digital Imaging Maturity is something most organisations strive for, as a GDE or not. The benefits and complexities of interoperability and interdisciplinary workflows, or 'doing more with less' further demonstrate the need to understand and assess the digitisation of Imaging IT. This session looks at the strategic journey to advanced imaging in the context of the HIMSS DIAM model and how organizations can master the challenges to reap the full benefits.

The barriers and building blocks for integrated care

Led by representative from Kainos Evolve

With increased emphasis on healthcare that is integrated, high quality AND better value for money, how can we use technology to make this a reality?
Kainos Evolve will be leading a session looking at what the barriers to better service provision at lower cost are, and how these can be overcome.

Data driven clinical transformation

Led by representative from Netapp

Discussion around how to get greater access to clinical data so that information can be accessed quickly, securely and more effectively. This can help clinicians to have real time access to the information they need at the right place and the right time so that they can make quicker and more effective clinical decisions to help provide better patient outcomes.
We will also discuss how to enable better sharing of data within an organisation and also sharing information across trusts to help with regional collaboration and helping to provide better integrated care across regions and communities.

Does the current NHS model for healthcare IT support value based healthcare?

Led by Steve Laws, Field Vice President, Software Sales EMEIA & CIS

Does the current NHS model for healthcare IT support Value Based healthcare?IT solutions have advanced dramatically over the past decades with technology in consumers using day to day being unrecognizable to 15 years ago, yet how have we embraced this in the NHS?Clinical care is complex, expensive and requires significant coordination.How is technology utilized to deliver evidence-based care?Are we truly leveraging big data to provide better patient experiences and to drive better clinical outcomes?How is investment in this technology justified and procured?

Cross-border integrated care IT solution in less than six months

Led by Richard Mangeolles, EMEA Business Manager Integrated Care, Agfa HealthCare and Gina Naughton, RIS/PACS System Administrator, Galway University Hospitals, Saolta University Healthcare Group

This workshop will provide an outline of the project to implement a safe, secure and easy to use integrated ICT solution to allow sharing of clinical images between hospitals in Saolta University Health Care Group, Republic of Ireland, and Altnagelvin Hospital, Northern Ireland.

Under starter’s orders…
The cross-border radiotherapy treatment project was setup to enhance patient comfort and care and will enable patients from County Donegal in the Republic of Ireland access radiotherapy services at nearby Altnagelvin Hospital, Northern Ireland.

This will reduce the patient’s travel time on treatment days from seven hours to 40 minutes. Clinicians in Altnagelvin Hospital need real-time access to the up-to-date radiology record of patients attending for radiotherapy treatment. This will facilitate effective patient review, multi-disciplinary meeting discussions, treatment planning and follow-up.

This is an integrated care model providing benefit to patients, their families, carers and clinicians. The ability to integrate and interoperate with other systems has always been important to Galway University Hospitals radiology staff, having implemented the first paperless/filmless radiology department in an Irish public hospital in 2005.

This project took less than six months from project initiation to Phase 1 go-live and proves that…

…“Who Shares Wins”
Join Richard Mangeolles and Gina Naughton for the workshop “Cross-Border Integrated Care IT Solution in less than six months” where they will describe the project in more detail as well as answering questions and discuss how to go about implementing an Integrated Care IT Solutions that provides real benefits for both patients and clinicians.
