Introduce the learnings from the NHS Insights Prioritisation Programme. The programme is designed to evaluate and facilitate implementation of innovation that supports post-pandemic ways of working, builds service resilience, and delivers benefits to patients.

Spotlight on how innovation supported moving care out of hospital during the pandemic (i.e., using remote monitoring, virtual minor stroke clinics, Community Assessment & Treatment Units, digital remote monitoring, Community Diagnostic Centres) and, because we have systematically captured the learning, to provide delegates with a ‘how to’ introduce those innovations locally that they can take away.

Remote monitoring offers an opportunity to care for patients in their homes, whilst also freeing up frontline staff and NHS estate. However, navigating the market is difficult due to the volume and diversity of solutions. The market is in growth phase, with many products offering a range of situationally appropriate functionalities. Our understanding of the value of RM and virtual ward pathways is also evolving, with emerging insights from patients and clinicians informing changes in functionality and new technological solutions.
By working in partnership with industry – bringing in their innovative ideas and technical capabilities – we can accelerate and direct the development of these technologies. Having engaged with 50/+ experts (CCIOs, procurement, commercial and legal experts) we have captured insights and recommendations on the mechanisms available through the procurement process to help the NHS harness innovation and drive remote monitoring in a way that works for patients, staff, and commissioners.

Amanda will be joining the panel discussion on How can digital solutions support the workforce? in the Digital Keynote Theatre between 14:45 – 15:30.

She will be joined by:

  • Alyson Scurfield, Chief Executive – TEC Services Association
  • Darren Atkins, Chief Technology Officer – The Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust
