HTN Now: National and local approaches to transforming care services

Our 2021 online event series is almost coming to a close, but there are still three days of sessions remaining, as part of our HTN Now Focus series – and we would love for you to join us.

For the next event in the series we take a closer look into AI, Cyber Security, Analytics and Data on 30 November, shortly followed by a focused day to explore the world of Electronic Patient Records on 9 December, and then for the finale, we focus on Digital Strategy, Transformation and Change on 14 December.

Amongst a wide-ranging group of speakers, from a variety of healthcare settings, the agenda for each day is taking shape, with lots of sessions taking a different approach to the focus area. Over the next few weeks, HTN will be sharing the details of each session and inviting the health tech community to attend. One of the sessions we would like to invite you to focuses on national and local approaches to transforming care services at acute, community and social care across Dorset and Somerset; a panel discussion.

The session is taking place at 1pm, 14 December, when we welcome a panel including:

  • Dr Shera Chok, GP, Tower Hamlets, Co-founder and Chair, The Shuri Network and Deputy Chief Medical Officer, NHS Digital,
  • Memory Kamwemba, Care Home Digital Outreach Team Communicator, Somerset CCG
  • Patricia Miller, Chief Executive, Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
  • Allison Nation, Associate Director – Digital Strategy, Directorate of Finance, Performance, Contracting and Digital, Somerset CCG
  • Mark Nicholas, Chief Social Worker and Social Care Lead, NHS Digital.

Through this engaging and passionate panel, the session will highlight work-streams taking place on a national perspective for digital transformation in social care and care in the community. It will explore local, practical approaches and programmes for acute, social care and community services, and share programmes across Dorset and Somerset which include addressing integrated care, patient flow and digital skills.

The session aims to share best practice, challenges, and how to unblock those challenges, drawing on national and local practical approaches.
