Digital Health and Patient Safety Conference

NHS Digital and the University of York are hosting a dedicated digital health and patient safety conference that is to be held at The Leeds Met Hotel on 22nd March 2018. King Street, Leeds, LS1 2HQ.

This boutique event is free of charge and is aimed at health and social care professionals, safety engineers, managers and policy makers, focusing on current and emergent trends and challenges in digital health and safety (health IT clinical risk) management.

The motivation for the conference is to continue to build the community of interest within our domain and provide an opportunity for people and organisations to share their successes, views and challenges. It is hoped that this event will be the first of many. We are venturing out smaller and sharing good guidance, practises etc; and hope by this method that we can grow the community.

The day will consist of a number of talks covering practical tools for safety management, human factors, standards for Health IT and medical devices, lessons from an acute system deployment, apps, machine learning and close with a panel session.
