11 Things You Need to Know About the Health + Care Show 2021

On 24th and 25th February, the Health + Care Show of 2021 will launch online, combining the collective knowledge of senior healthcare managers and clinicians to learn, collaborate and network at a crucial time of change during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As experienced technology providers for the UK public sector, NFON will sponsor two sessions at the event:

‘A Testing Ground for the Remote Consultation’ (24th February, 10:40 – 11:10)

‘Digital First, Cloudya & The Talking Cure’ (25th February, 11:45 – 12:15)

In both sessions we will be joined by Ciaron Hoye, Deputy Chief Information Officer, NHS Birmingham and Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group and NFON’s NHS Specialist, Scott Somenthal as they discuss the unique digital challenges GPs have faced during the pandemic and how technology, such as modern telephony systems, can provide seamless and streamlined user experiences for healthcare professionals and patients.

This is an example of how digitalisation has improved the efficiency, security and quality of care in healthcare during COVID-19, which our session will cover in more detail.
  10. Looking to expand on your technology or Smarter Working practices? You have come to the right place: An integral topic of discussion throughout the event will be the innovations in technology and digitalisation that have emerged since the start of the pandemic. How healthcare organisations can harness these developments and their benefits to the far-reaching corners of the UK is the next challenge to address.

The NHS has faced many difficulties during its half-century existence, but none that reach the global urgency of COVID-19. The Health + Care Online Show has arrived at a necessary time of reflection for healthcare workers to come together and recognise the enduring challenges the sector has overcome in the past 12 months, and what lies in the great journey ahead.

We all owe it to ourselves to really learn from COVID-19 and the many lessons it has taught us. We look forward to seeing you there!
