Connecting Health IT to Enable the Rapid Reconfiguration of Care Provision



As a result of the pandemic, hospitals are being reinvented as centres of intensive care, with other services being pushed out into the community, or delivered through virtual settings. This is driving the largest shake-up of NHS estates and the delivery of care ever witnessed.

At the heart of this reconfiguration is the need for a connected health and IT infrastructure that will enable clinicians to effectively deliver patient care in any setting. The imperative for access to apps, data and systems in any location, at any time has never been more essential or urgent.

In this Together for Health webinar in partnership with Citrix we will be hearing from transformation leaders at the heart of delivering connected systems. We’ll be discussing the need for rapid transformation and the business case for investing into connected IT systems right now, as well as exploring some of the practicalities of connecting your legacy systems to enable clinicians to deliver effective care regardless of their location.

Discussion points include:

  • Reviewing the scale of transformation in care setting as a response to Covid
  • Making the case for why connected IT systems are an enabler to reconfiguration
  • Reviewing the challenges and barriers to providing access to legacy systems for all clinical staff regardless of location
  • Finding the path of least resistance to deliver rapid digital transformation
  • Ensuring security across interoperable systems
  • Balancing cost effectiveness of systems investment
