Digital Health’s two-day Summer School programme is set to feature an array of national and international digital experts to explore digital responses to coronavirus. The free event will be held on July 23-24 and will host more than 50 speakers.
Keynote speakers include: NHSX CEO Matthew Gould; NHSX CIO Sonia Patel; NHS Digital CEO Sarah Wilkinson and NHS England and NHS Improvement Director of Primary Care Dr. Nikki Kanani. Other contributors will include Queensland Health CCIO Professor Keith McNeil and Shayne Hunter, Deputy Director-General Data and Digital and New Zealand’s Ministry of Health.
The event will look at how digital and data have been used in the response to COVID-19 and examine the potential future of the sector. Participants will have access to various online event formats, including video diaries detailing the use of digital transformation in adverse working conditions, Q&As and panel discussions with audience input.
Digital Health CEO Jon Hoeksma said: “The COVID-19 crisis meant it was impossible to hold the regular Summer School this year, so we’ve used the need to go virtual as an opportunity to build a great programme focused on UK and international digital responses to the pandemic.“
“We invite all digital leaders in health and care UK or internationally interested in learning from how your peers have used digital and to respond to the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis, and what comes next, for a very special Summer School on 23-24 July.”
