Presentations will cover:
- Something’s wrong with me! – The GP front line and how mobile wireless technology can be used to facilitate chronic disease diagnosis and on going management within the new NHS
- Fix me and discharge me - The electronic health record and the connected hospital
- Is this treatment working? - Patient monitoring with implantable devices
- Who’s going to help me afterwards? - Connected social care
Following hospital admission, the patient's EHR is required to be easily accessible to authorised staff. This next talk will focus on how the ‘connected hospital’ facilitates access to the EHR to improve quality, safety and speed of treatment. Taking learning from prior hospital implementation pitfalls, this important presentation will outline how all data, from nurses’ notes to lab tests and consultation, may be stored, displayed, consumed and updated with total reliability and efficiency.
Implantable technologies have great scope for long-term management of chronic disease because they provide accurate and bespoke data gathered wirelessly from devises buried in the body; and crucially how this information can provide a tailored solution to the patient and healthcare provider. This innovative talk will demonstrate how a particular disease, once diagnosed, has the potential to be better managed following the fitting of a simple electronic implantable device.
