What happened at Health Insights in Manchester in June

In June, our summer series investigated how NHS and care services are using e-health and data to ensure better patient safety, prevent ill-health and improve population health.

This included Connected Health Cities' work to safely and securely combine population health data and technology to address the management of long term conditions and reduce early mortality.

We will also heard from a local Global Digital Exemplar, Wirral University Teaching Hospital, on its plans to improve digital maturity in local health organisations. We were joined by HIMSS analytics which gave us insight into measuring your organisation's digital progress.

Tickets to Health Insights are complimentary for NHS colleagues. Register here
