With the unprecedented pressures across the NHS and social care, we must utilise digital technologies to help people manage their own health more effectively. Digital technologies will be critical to increase capacity and shift the balance of care from the clinic to the home or community.

This event will raise awareness of the benefits of cross-sector collaboration, how digital applications can be effective tools and examples of how digital care used successfully at home. Join us to understand how the introduction of digital applications can help to bring care closer to home for many patients in Wales.

The event will include:

  • Introductions of the Cross Sector Programme and networking hubs from the Academy of Medical Sciences and Life Sciences Hub Wales.
  • Inspiring talks from Managing Director of Romilly Life Sciences - Professor Peter Bannister and digital healthcare company Healthy.io.
  • Table discussions and networking opportunities.
  • Extended time to network with other participants to find areas of common interest and explore further connections and potential collaborations.
