Design and Implementation of a large Health Informatics Transformation Programme in the NHS.

It is essential to have reliable IT infrastructure, technical support and clinical systems, but it is the quality of the clinical engagement in the design and implementation of a health informatics system which determines its success.

This very practical session is led by the team who have worked on the Newcastle Global Digital Exemplar programme over the past 3 years and who will share our experiences and lessons learned for anyone undertaking this kind of work, and will include a short interactive workshop and time for questions.

Change and adoption in a digital healthcare landscape

This session will bring together the resistance in practice to introducing new digital concepts, strategies to gain adoption, clinical leadership in practice, utilisation and usability and the patient facing digital solutions and how to move the agenda forward.

  1. Cultural issues of digital change, deployment, and adoption for the change fatigued NHS
  2. Nudging the patient to adopt new models of healthcare, accepting change, and the paradigm shift required to self-help healthcare.
  3. How do we change the spoon-feeding NHS model of paternalistic healthcare to a shared decision-making model?
  4. How can digital solutions radically change healthcare delivery?
