Digital transformation – myth, magic or manageable? 5 key factors for success in Low Code enabled change, in pursuit of efficiency and improved patient outcomes

We know large scale transformation is hard for healthcare organisations and especially The NHS, particularly in an environment of heavy bureaucracy and long-term COTS technology partners. But we don’t agree that smaller scale digital transformation can’t add up to big positive change – and we can prove it.

Join us to learn the 5 lessons that we have learnt about how to drive process efficiency improvements that can genuinely impact patient outcomes and stakeholder experience.

  1. Automation’ sounds terrifying and reductive, but what does it really mean? Success comes from understanding what tools and techniques to apply into what circumstances to ensure stakeholders will accept and adopt any new structure.
  2. How to really understand user’s needs to reduce project risk and accelerate adoption. Not just at a UX level but through a Service Design lens, taking into account different accessibility needs and requirements, and proven methods to secure adoption at scale.
  3. Freeing up admin time to focus on patient outcomes. This is perhaps the most common claim made for automation, but is genuinely achievable.
  4. Interoperability – Do we really want another monolithic technology structure to manage (and find that it doesn’t play nicely with any of our other monolithic structures?) or do we want an ecosystem of ‘digital lego’ that can knit together multiple diverse systems to deliver the outcomes you need?
  5. Prove the value of the change rapidly. How do you deliver at pace whilst managing risk effectively. Are you prepared to wait another 5 or 10 years for the change you need to see? Are patients?

Healthcare Transformation: Is your Network Ready?

As healthcare becomes more digitally driven, the role of network performance has become a critical path for the delivery of care. Lives depend on the network being 100% reliable, which means the network cannot go down or be compromised. How can you create a network that not only keeps everyone securely connected 24/7, but also enables a more digital future and gives staff time back to focus on what matters most?

Join Aruba – a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company – as Simon Wilson (CTO for Aruba UKI) unpacks the principles of network modernization for healthcare. We’ll cover:

  • How to build a worry-free network that enables connectivity at scale, simplified and intelligent security, flexibility and agility – ready for today’s and tomorrow’s digital demands.
  • How innovations in networking technology, such as cloud-based networking and network as a service, can help healthcare do more with less and manage the current staffing shortfall.
  • How a modern network can unlock new efficiencies – from simplified network management to digital wayfinding – giving staff more time to focus on patient care.

Simon will also draw from examples of successful network transformation from local UKI healthcare organizations, including Nuffield Health.

A Roadmap to Clinically Driven Digital Maturity

Digital transformation in the NHS is a critical challenge and demands reform. Such large-scale transformation programmes often require significant behavioural and cultural changes, coupled with substantial financial investment – meaning digital transformation is inherently difficult.

Join this panel session to hear from leaders from across the Altera Digital Health community and their experiences of EPR deployments and the critical role the processes are playing in helping digitise, connect, and transform services towards digital maturity.

You’ll learn:

  • How it is possible for an EPR to be implemented in months, not years, without any compromise on quality, safety, or usability
  • The role of leaders and the cultural shift in taking a digital first approach to deliver patient care, tackling inequalities and reducing backlogs
  • The benefits of mobilising data for patients and clinicians
  • How integration across regions is critical in helping clinicians and healthcare leaders make the right decision at the right time
  • How open solutions are essential in supporting seamless information sharing and regional digital transformation
  • How Human-Centred Design principles can be adopted in the development of solutions to deliver what clinical users need at the point of care to help reduce cognitive burden

Improving Acute Care through Standards-Based Medical Device Interoperability

The pandemic has clearly revealed how digitalisation can help caregivers in hospitals to deliver better and more efficient patient care. Emerging standards such as ISO/IEEE 11073 SDC are a key enabler for the advancement of medical technologies and care processes. This session explains how the standards-based interoperability of medical devices will drive digitalisation in hospitals. It will discuss the new SDC standard, how it relates to other standards such as HL7 and FHIR and describes various use cases that can make an important contribution to improving acute care

Innovations in EPR Education: Accelerating Onboarding and Increasing User Efficiency with a Just-In-Time Training Strategy

As one of the largest hospitals in the Netherlands with more than 6,500 employees, Elisabeth-TweeSteden Ziekenhuis (ETZ) first sought a solution to train healthcare personnel in the use of the EPR more effectively. Their clinical education program’s vision: a hybrid training model that provides on-the-job assistance that addresses different learning styles and preferences.

The once thought to be impossible is now possible. Join us to learn how ETZ is leveraging technology to increase clinician EPR efficiency and satisfaction by:

  • Reducing time in new hire onboarding
  • Eliminating how-to frustration in the EPR with training materials in the workflow
  • Saving clinicians valuable time to focus on what matters most – their patients
