The NHS is on a road to recovery. The health service is under strain and technology and innovation – if harnessed in the right way – can alleviate some of the pressures on the system. Health & Social Care Transformation 2025 is the annual conference bringing together the ‘triple helix’ of government, industry and academia to unlock the potential of technology and innovation to deliver better patient outcomes and move from an era of reactive to proactive care. Getting data to flow between hospitals, GP services, social care, pharmacists and allied health professionals is vital to that cause. There are also moves to foster a vibrant startup culture within the NHS and social care – removing bureaucratic hurdles and securing faster adoption of ground-breaking innovations. The conference will provide a platform for health and social care leaders working to effect positive change.

Learning Objectives:

  • Global thought leadership on transforming health and social care systems at a strategic level
  • Putting data and digital at the heart of responsive, user-centred design approaches to citizen healthcare
  • Joining up data systems and making data ‘work’ at the point of use, improving frontline services and the experience of health and social care
  • Identifying system blockages and working with health and social care leaders to overcome organisational and cultural barriers
  • Understanding how to use AI to assist clinicians’ decision-making, automate clinical processes and give time back to care
  • Show and tell: using inspiring case studies to inform best practice guidance for delivering transformative health and social care
  • Embedding a startup culture within your organisation to enable frontline staff to contribute to the  innovation ecosystem
