Can the Digital Healthcare Show save the NHS?

by Stuart Wood

The Digital Healthcare Show concluded on 28 June this year at London’s ExCel centre.

It saw over 10,000 healthcare professionals gathered under one roof across two education packed days, celebrating the latest developments in healthcare technology.

400+ healthcare pioneers shared practical solutions with delegates, as part of an attempt to use intelligent data to help strengthen frontline services across the UK.

Among the speakers were Simon Eccles and Will Smart, CIOs at NHS England, James Freed, CIO at Health Education England, and Tim Kelsey, chief executive of the Australian Digital Health Agency.

Show manager Lee Davies said: “Our delegates flocked to the buzzing exhibitions floor to witness a range of ground-breaking technologies in healthcare.

This event is a reflection of the inevitable and imminent change in the healthcare sector to embrace digital technologies. Digital transformation of healthcare is viewed by many as the single most critical factor in addressing the funding, staffing and capacity challenges facing the NHS at almost every level.”

Roy Lilley, health policy analyst and NHS commentator, said: “I thought this year’s Digital Healthcare Show was the best I’ve seen. Relevant, interesting, a huge range of suppliers, and absorbing conference sessions.

“2019 will be even more important. Who knows how many new initiatives and changes in policy we can expect?”

Next year’s 2019 event will run from 26-27 June.
