  • 15:45: The value of engaging local authorities as true partners in Integrated Care Systems - Jerry Hall, Customer Services Director, Socitm
    To be truly successful ICSs need to engage across the ecosystem of partners within a place. As the custodians of place, councils should be a key player in the place based thinking that underpins ICSs. A number of factors may be preventing all councils taking on that role fully. There are opportunities to be exploited, related to data, workforce and using digital innovations to influence the wider determinants of health, if all councils are enabled to be true partners (Download slides)

  • 53:30: Transforming Information Governance - Dawn Monaghan, Interim Director of IG Policy, Ethics and Head of Profession, NHSE & I
    For many years Information Governance (IG) has been seen as a blocker to change, the complexity of the IG landscape often perplexes those who need to use information, creating a lack of confidence and paralysis. The pandemic illustrated the need for a more proportionate response to IG issues, it demonstrated the imperative to resolve key frontline issues quickly not only to improve health and care but to enable increased research and to inform policy and decision makers. It also showcased IG in health and care and emphasised the need not only to understand the Data Protection Act but to have a wider knowledge of privacy, ethics and clinical safety. Capitalising upon the lessons learned the Data Strategy commits to a plan to transform the approach to Information Governance (Download slides)

Nutanix was founded with a bold vision: to make managing IT infrastructure so simple that it becomes invisible. It all started with bringing together compute, storage, networking, and virtualization in one invisible stack with Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI), this vision now extended to make clouds invisible too. In the UK, Nutanix is working with around 190 Public Sector customers to help them on their journey to a Cloud operating model whether that is Private, Public, or most often a Hybrid or Multi Cloud strategy. The starting point is the modernisation of legacy platforms and applications onto the secure Nutanix Enterprise Cloud platform, simplifying operations, automating processes, and managing the infrastructure to accelerate the delivery of improved digital services. Nutanix has partnered with UKAuthority to produce a series of briefing notes on cloud migration - the challenges, opportunities and the benefits of a hybrid cloud. Catch up here
