8:40: Keynote — Andrew Ord | Account Executive at Microsoft
How Digital Transformation is Driving Healthcare Outcomes
Microsoft is partnering with health organisations across the world to provide the platforms which enable the digital transformation of healthcare. Microsoft’s key purpose is to provide trusted, certified, on-demand and scalable cloud platforms that enable our partners to make their digital aspirations a reality.
As one of the most attacked web properties in the world, Microsoft knows a thing or two about defending against modern cyber threats and, along with our specialist security partners, we bake multi-layered security into our platform “as-a-service” to ensure your data is safe and secure and benefits from the best protections and cyber knowhow the industry has to offer.
In this introduction we talk about our investments and the great opportunity offered through our cloud platforms. We will bring you stories of how Microsoft’s heavy lifting around infrastructure and platforms for our partners enables them to concentrate on driving their healthcare outcomes through enabling digital transformation.
9:30: Keynote — Don McIntyre | Design Director at The Innovation School, Glasgow School of Art
The role of design driven insight in the development of a 'Demonstration and Simulation Environment' with the purpose of supporting decision making for digital service adoption at scale.
Scotland has a growing capability in digital health and care, with an industry that contributes significantly to the Scottish economy. The country also has very strong academic credentials in digital health, with a growing demand for increased research capacity and skills training.
The Demonstration and Simulation Environment (DSE), developed by the Digital Health & Care Institute, showcases projects, innovations and insights generated by DHI, including new service, technology and business models. It is based on the need to both open up routes to market, empower the citizen and provide a space where health professionals, technology providers and policy makers can feel confident in taking transformative leaps supported by digital technology.
Don will talk about how a patient centred, design driven approach has been used to elicit the needs of citizens with respect to personal data and digital interoperability.
10:15: Keynote — Jonathan Lee | UK Healthcare Sector Manager at Sophos
The change in security requirements as patient-centred care is delivered, Jonathan Lee, Sophos, UK Healthcare Sector Manager
Evidence tells us that supporting patients to be actively involved in their own care, treatment and support can improve outcomes and experience for patients, and potentially lead to efficiency savings for the system through more personalised support for people to stay well and manage their own conditions better.
Part of this evolution towards patient-centred care involves the use of digital health. Technologies being used include include telemedicine, web-based analysis, email, mobile phones and apps, text messages, wearable devices, and clinic or remote monitoring devices. Although all of these can bring major benefits to the patient, what can be done to keep their information secure? In this session we will look at how Sophos can help you with that challenge.
