Digital Leadership in Healthcare

29 June 2017 9:30 am - 29 June 2017 1:00 pm


NHS partners are invited to join us on 29th June for a free Masterclass exploring the Internet of Things. It is a fantastic opportunity for NHS staff to gain the knowledge required to work with the technologies (sensors, wearables, smart devices etc.) that will transform our health service and the way we work with patients.

Run by Dr V A Michell BSc MBA D.Phil (Oxon) in conjunction with DigitalHealth.London, the Masterclass will support operational health staff to build awareness of the key digital health technologies that will be crucial to the transformation of the way we deliver patient care.

It will be delivered using an innovative learning approach that facilitates critical thinking and discussion through the use of case studies which describe real implementations – enabling NHS professionals and clinicians to be better prepared for, and open to, a digital future in healthcare.

Key themes include:-

a) What is the Internet of Things?

b) How does it affect my role/ job?

c) How can my team best leverage this technology to improve patient care?
