The future of healthcare is upon us. Join us in Glasgow as we bring together stakeholders from across Scotland’s health, care and third sector landscape for a landmark conference to chart a path towards the better management of social care in the community. Hear about developments in electronic health records, AI detecting patient deterioration and remote platforms monitoring patients’ vital signs from afar. Scaling technology trials and innovation pilots are the next big challenge as we navigate a path to sustainable health and care services based on tech-driven preventative and interventionist care delivery models.

  • Health and Care Transformation is the leading public sector conference for digital health and social care leaders in Scotland.
  • The conference will analyse how the post-pandemic service paradigm is shifting ever more towards digitisation and technology and how we better manage demand and improve care.
  • We look at the ways in which data, sensors, applications, and automation can be part of the everyday experience of treatment and care.
  • Join us as healthcare and industry leaders map out how technology and innovation can play a vital role in making care more accessible, accountable, and applicable to the way people are living their lives.
