The digital and data steps needed to integrate health and care will come under the spotlight next week at UKAuthority’s virtual conference.

Speakers from across health, social care and the technology industry will showcase innovation and share experience at the two day event taking place online on 15 and 16 May. They will explore how digital, data and technology can improve the patient journey from hospital to home, delivering the benefits of virtual wards and use of sensors and IoT to keep people safer for longer in their own homes.

There will also be a focus on data, along with an exploration of the potential for analytics and AI to drive preventative programmes to improve and extend the quality of people’s lives and deliver efficiencies through the reduction in emergency admissions.

The event - one of UKAuthority's annual events - will provide an excellent opportunity to strengthen understanding of initiatives that will underpin digital and data steps for integrated health and care:
