The importance of innovative technology to support the transformation of adult social care is now widely accepted across the sector and up to the highest policy levels. The ADASS Informatics Network has been at the forefront of pushing informatics up the care and health agenda since its “Web of Support” vision back in 2012. This year’s London conference will again feature inspiring national speakers combined with very practical workshop sessions showcasing good local examples of the use of technology. There will be plenty of opportunities for discussion and networking to improve your effectiveness back in your organisations.
This year our keynote speaker is Rt. Hon Alistair Burt MP, Minister of State for Community and Social Care followed by Tim Donohoe, Director of Informatics, Department of Health.
We also have the straight-talking Roy Lilley to host a short after-lunch plenary discussion and put panellists on the spot in a closing session. Roy has a long career in the health and care sector challenging leaders when he disagrees with them and supporting them when he reckons they are doing right – all in the name of patients.
For details of the other speakers please view the Agenda.
As in the previous two high profile conferences, the key themes will be “Engaging Citizens Online for care” and “Enabling better working with health colleagues”. Places will still be free of charge for local authority delegates, but we are particularly keen to encourage attendance of your partner organisations for the transformation journey. These free places are available on a first come first served basis.
Free places are made possible by the generosity of commercial sponsors. There will also be an exhibition space for software suppliers and other organisations to promote their latest offerings.
