This is a free event. Refreshments and catering are also provided including morning coffee, lunch and afternoon coffee. Register now via Eventbrite.

Healthcare Innovations

This full day event brings together senior NHS and social care professionals with expert industry and academic technology innovators to explore how new technologies in sensing, imaging and the Internet of Things (IoT) could solve some of the challenges facing the NHS today.

Technology is developing and improving at a tremendous rate and this event will explore how new innovations could be used in the health and social care sector to improve patient care, reduce waste and inefficiencies and streamline processes.

The day will start with plenary speakers outlining health and social care challenges as well as an overview of what technologies are already in use in other sectors that could evolve to suit health and social care challenges.

We will then hear from speakers in sessions covering:

  • Hospital estates and buildings including asset management
  • Patient safety and care including community care
  • Technology in diagnostics including technologies relevant to healthcare

Who should attend?

You will get the most from the day if you are:

  • NHS and social care senior staff – including clinical staff, management and policy makers
  • Industry technology innovators looking to engage with the health sector in Scotland
  • Academic staff from the university and college sector
  • Employees of universities or colleges working in innovation and business engagement activities
  • Anyone else interested in developing or using sensing, imaging or IoT technologies to introduce additional efficiencies or solve challenges in health and social care environments.
