Digital Health and BCS partner on a series of events

Digital Health and BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT have begun to collaborate on a series of events to further develop and raise the profile of health informatics leaders and digital health as an emerging profession and discipline.

Digital Health and BCS are partnering on the development of a new ‘Future Digital Leaders’ Summer School for aspiring future digital leaders, working together with the NHS Graduate Trainee Informatics Programme delivered by University of Manchester and UCL.

Work has also begun on the development of a new Academic Track at the 2018 Digital Health Summer Schools.  This will highlight some of the best developments in UK clinical informatics research, with a particular focus on benefits realisation.

The partnership launches ahead of the Digital Health Leadership Summit, 15-16 March 2018, Bristol, day one of which will be chaired by BCS Health and Care chair, Andy Kinnear.


Jon Hoeksma, Chief Executive at Digital Health, said: “For the NHS to secure the full potential benefits of digitisation for patients critically depends on significantly accelerating the development of current and future digital leaders. Digital Health is proud to be able to play a part in this movement.”

“Our new partnership with BCS is an absolutely key step in further developing and supporting current CCIOs, CIOs and CNIOs and future digital leaders through compelling networking, events and professional development resources.”
