We are hosting the welcome reception the night before the main conference, from 6pm. This will be an informal get-together and a chance to play on the famous Belfry golf course – albeit just for a bit of friendly competition putting & learning chip shots with the Belfry golf pros!

08.45-09.20 - Arrival & Registration Breakfast & Refreshments available

09.20-09.35 - Welcome

Mark Palmer, Country Manager UK & Ireland - InterSystems

Mark would like to welcome you to our annual Joined-Up Health & Care conference & take some time to reflect on the evolution of technology, the NHS, & InterSystems - who is also celebrating a milestone this year by turning 40.

09.30-10.05 - Welcome Keynote - Communication, teamwork & agility

Sir Matthew Pinsent CBE

Matthew entered Olympic history in 2004 at the Athens Olympic Games when he led the Great Britain coxless four to victory. In doing so, Matthew became one of only five athletes in the world to win four gold medals in four consecutive Olympic Games. Matthew will be focusing on communication and teamwork - and how with trust, collaboration, and no hidden agenda we can function together as high performing teams.

10.00-10.30 - Time to Care - Securing a future for the hospital workforce

Mike Hay, Director - Deloitte

It is easy to become distracted by what digital solutions could do for improving care & efficiencies in the NHS. But there is no healthcare without a workforce. Mike will reflect on the UK research findings of a pan-European survey of doctors & nurses, which highlights the demands for hospital care and the impact increased demands have on health and care workforce, and reflecting on where technology has had an impact in improving care. Mike will also touch on the digital hospital of the future & the potential power technology has to change hospitals & health care delivery globally.

10.30-11.10 - Managing Complex Delivery - lessons learnt

Graham Evans, Chief Information and Technology Officer - North Tees & Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust

Any large technology implementation is going to be difficult. But what does it take to succeed? Graham will discuss how NTH was able to be successful & share the difficulties experienced along the journey so far.

 
11.10-11.30 - Break
 

11.30-11.50 - KLAS - UK Interoperability Study

Jeremy Goff, Sr. Research Director for Financial Systems and Infrastructure and Jason Hess, Executive Vice President – Strategy - KLAS Research

Jeremy will highlight the findings from the recent interoperability study conducted in the UK - the successes & barriers experienced by organisations across the health & care system in the UK.

11.50-12.30 - Healthy Children: transforming child health information

Philip Graham, Digital Programme Lead - Lancashire & South Cumbria Sustainability & Transformation Partnership


Digital child health services remain unchanged for over 20 years, & remain disjointed with many services paper-based & manually intensive. This means that health professionals don't have access to the relevant health information - a constant complaint in the NHS. Phil will share a new vision for how child health information can support parents & professionals in their direct care for children & young people & how the same information can be used to promote their health & wellbeing across health & social care & education services.

If you are an NHS organisation & want to learn more about how this can be replicated for your own region, please join the breakout session after lunch.

12.30-13.10 - Unifying the Health Multiverse

Don Woodlock, VP - InterSystems

We have reached an important plateau now with the digitisation of healthcare through the adoption of EMRs and other technologies - taking stepping stones to better information and workflows in the clinical care process. We are standing on that next stone and ready to move forward. Don will outline the challenges, our vision, examples from our customers around the world, and the role of the unified health record.

13.10-13.15 - Breakout Introductions

Mark Palmer, Country Manager UK & Ireland - InterSystems

 
13.15-14.30 - Lunch & Drop-in Sessions

Global Trust - Building Trust by Protecting Information Matters

13.45 - FHIRside - HL7, FHIR, & the Future of Interoperability
Russ Leftwich, Senior Clinical Advisor - InterSystems

InterSystems, with a long history of standards support & advocacy, has embraced FHIR as the new paradigm of interoperability in healthcare. Through HealthShare all the data for an individual or a population can be transformed & aggregated as a FHIR representation, & applications developed with FHIR can access it. This FHIR repository of data allows applications based on the latest technology to use that data for patient care, value-based care, quality improvement, research, & other use cases.

Book time with Russ & the team to discuss what FHIR can do for your organisation. Or experience for yourself the power of connecting HL7® FHIR® apps to a unified health record in the InterSystems FHIR Sandbox, built using the latest version of HealthShare Information Exchange, populated with synthetic data, & linked to popular SMART on FHIR apps.

Solution Partner Showcase

14.30-16.00 - Afternoon Streams
     
Stream 1: Sharing Information That Matters   Stream 2: Healthy Children: transforming child health information

14.30-15.00 - Patient Engagement - changing relationships with the physician

Yossi Cohen, Physician Executive - InterSystems

Last year Jeremy Hunt declared that the next ten years would be seen as the "patient power decade" – patients will use the information that becomes available at their fingertips to exert real control, in a way that will transform their care. This is a fundamental change in the doctor-patient relationship &, as such, not straightforward. Yossi will explore & reflect on research findings on patients & clinician attitudes & offer recommendations on how to engage both for successful transformation of care.

 

14.30-16.15 - NHS Only

Following the introduction in the morning, this session will look in more detail about how this national initiative is being realised by means of a FHIR event management service, providing a simple, standards based mechanism to receive and distribute information about child health events to clinicians across many different care settings. The initial implementation processes 35 different event types and is readily extensible to encompass additional events and cohorts.

Discussion

Close - Paul Cook, InterSystems

15.00-15.30 - Patient Safety Matters

Iain Mackenzie, Physician Executive - InterSystems

Despite rapid advances in information technology & medical devices, most healthcare organisations have not achieved the same high reliability & safety as other industries. Technology is not the only answer to ensure patient safety, no single piece of software can alter the culture of an entire health system. Iain will discuss how through harnessing available data, connecting users, & helping to coordinate patient hand-offs, technology has the power to assist stakeholders in creating safer, more systems-based approaches across their organisations.

 

15.30-16.10 - Bringing together the information that matters - in the hospital & beyond

Mike Green, CCIO - South Devon & Torbay NHS Foundation Trust

The information network in South Devon is extending & sharing health & care information flowing from the hospital & beyond. Hear from Mike on the region's challenge of agile development & look at the relationship between collecting & sharing information to support workflows.
