We are therefore thrilled to be running a second webinar series which will engage individuals from across the health sector on this topic.”

Dr Jean Ledger, Research Fellow, Department of Applied Health Research, University College London, said: “We wanted to start collaborative discussions about improving evidence generation in digital health last year by hearing from leaders in the field and sharing perspectives across disciplines. By launching this next series of webinars, we aim to keep up momentum and grow a community of interest – one that can have a real impact on the success of digital transformation in health and social care.”
Neelam Patel, CEO MedCity said: “MedCity is proud to be a partner in this webinar series once again. If the debates and information sharing in the last series is anything to go by, part two promises to be exciting and inspiring for anyone interested in digital health.”
Jenny Thomas, Programme Director at DigitalHealth.London said, “If the legacy of the pandemic is to include the digital transformation of health and social care services, generating and using good evidence will be vital. I’m therefore delighted that DigitalHealth.London is once again collaborating with our partners at University College London, the Health Innovation Network and MedCity to deliver a new webinar series on the topic of evidence generation. I would encourage anyone with an interest in digital innovation in health care – whether innovators, clinicians or academics – to join these fantastic webinars.”
