Day Two


Saf Angelo, Assistant Director Digital Productivity, NHS England
Leveraging RPA and digital productivity technologies to optimise the NHS
NHS England’s Digital Productivity programme focuses on accelerating the adoption of evidence-based technologies to improve productivity across the NHS and social care. Saf Angelo will introduce evidence-based digital tools such as RPA, Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) including Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Real Time Locating Systems (RTLS). We will hear how these tools can be – and already are being – used effectively to improve productivity, enabling the NHS to deliver care and treatments to more patients, improve the quality of care, reduce the burden on the workforce, save time, lower costs, reduce waste, and increase patient and staff satisfaction. The session will highlight the resources available to NHS bodies, and the lessons learned by those that have already adopted RPA - freeing up frontline time worth up to £12.5 billion a year – almost 10 per cent of its annual running cost
