Who should attend

Chief Information Officers, IT Directors and IT Managers

Unlike any other health IT event, UK e-Health Week not only brings together the traditional e-Health community but also a huge range of policy makers making key announcements that will directly impact IT in your organisation. UK e-Health Week unites the most diverse audience in healthcare IT in an unrivalled learning and networking opportunity that includes clinical leads, nurses and suppliers who come together to showcase, learn best practice and discuss key issues from the UK and beyond.

Improve your way of handling change management, information governance and clinical leadership issues and ensure that you are getting the best possible value out of your existing investments, as well as accessing the latest and most innovative IT solutions to give you invaluable information to support procurement decisions.

Finance Directors
At a time when budgets are under constant scrutiny, e-Health Week will showcase solutions that have been proven to demonstrate efficiency gains and return on investment. Those working in finance will get the opportunity to learn from the experiences of their peers and meet multiple suppliers all in one place.

Clinical leadership has never been more critical in ensuring healthcare professionals receive the right IT systems to enable them to provide the best possible care for patients. Clinicians play a significant role in ensuring systems are incorporated into clinical workflows to provide tangible benefits for staff and patients alike. UK e-Health Week will give clinicians an unrivalled opportunity to learn how to get the very best out of IT systems to improve patient outcomes, safety and efficiency.

UK e-Health Week will be the first and only event to ensure nurses truly have a voice in healthcare IT. With a dedicated NHS England Nursing plenary session, the programme will feature high level speakers as well as best practice examples of those working directly with technology on the front line, including community care. In addition, the plenary sessions will be part of a wider conference programme that draw upon the most topical issues in information technology centred around improving patient safety and care.

Health IT is increasingly supporting managers in their quest to enhance patient care meanwhile improving performance. UK e-Health Week will address the key issues managers face in their everyday roles, from using information more intelligently to better inform the decisions around service redesign and resources, to using technology as an enabler to help meet local and central targets and reduce administrative tasks.

Integrated and Social Care Professionals
UK e-Health Week brings together care professionals from every setting to discuss, debate and share how they can work together more effectively and the technology and change management that is required to support that. With key sessions focused on the latest developments such as the Vanguard Sites and the regulatory and commissioning roadmap for interoperability by 2020 as well as lessons in integration from flagship organisations, e-Health Week will provide a unique opportunity to understand strategic perspectives and emerging thinking from across the UK.

With increasing responsibility for IT, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), Clinical Support Units (CSUs) and those responsible for planning and procuring solutions and services for local health populations can find the support they need at UK e-Health Week to make the best possible decisions for their health economy. The conference programme will cover topical issues at the heart of the commissioning agenda including regulatory and commissioning roadmaps for interoperability by 2020, as well as how data is being used to shape and redesign services. UK e-Health Week is dedicated to exploring the benefits that technology can bring to healthcare - improving outcomes for patients and ensuring performance efficiency gains.

UK e-Health week enables suppliers, from start ups to multi national corporations, to showcase their products and services to an audience of influential leaders and allows for fantastic networking opportunities to help benefit your business. Not only will your brand be seen amongst leading policy makers but UK e-Health Week will also ensure that you gain exposure and engage in conversation amongst current and prospective customers at a point in the year when fresh budgets have been allocated. In addition, the packed Open Stage conference programme will be back again to ensure you leave the event with everything you need to know about the ever-changing market place.

With more than a quarter of attendees at the show typically coming from organisations such as NHS England, UK e-Health Week will provide an exclusive opportunity to showcase innovative solutions to key decisions makers. Whether your aim is to take your product to market, learn more about the opportunities and barriers in the healthcare IT industry, develop your product strategy or look for other experienced, innovative suppliers to work with, UK e-Health week allows you to do this, in front of over 3000 healthcare and IT professionals and influential budget holders.
