Breakout 1: Joining up Care: Whole system e-referral and patient flow with Strata Health Solutions

As Scottish health and care organisations look to integrate services and provide joined-up care to patients, the delivery and management of these “pathways” will inevitably require a digital solution.

This workshop will look at how regions in the UK and Canada have implemented the Strata Pathways solutions to improve the flow and transition of patients within and across Health and Care organisations. It will examine how clinically matching patients to all out-of-hospital services can bring operational efficiencies for stakeholder organisations and how a live, cloud-based solution can deliver better outcomes for patients by ensuring they are allocated to the right care setting as quickly as possible. 

Howard Waldner, Dean of the School of Health and Public Safety, Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, Calgary, Canada and Former Chief Executive of Vancouver Island Health Region, Canada and former Chief Executive of Dundee Teaching Hospitals

Breakout 2: The Security Conundrum – How do you protect the business without complicating things or shutting down services? with Check Point

The recent Wannacry outage certainly grabbed the headlines but worst it highlighted that cyber attacks can disrupt vital services.  In the aftermath it was clear that more can be done to protect patients and deliver services. Six months on has there been a step change? What does the move towards ‘the cloud’ mean for security? How does a mobile workforce change the risk? What does the next Wannacry look like?

Aatish Patni, Head of Threat Prevention, Northern Europe, Check Point

Breakout 3: Removing the Mystery to Achieving Advanced Health Data Analytics and Decision Support with Leidos

Big Data Analytics in the health space is exploding and the promise of realising improved decision support though automated tools is enticing. Complexity, training requirements and the associated cost can contribute to unexpected barriers to implementation. Leverage a proven product and solution ecosystems to simplify the process and deliver meaningful decision support to solve critical challenges facing health and social care providers across the continuum of care. Learn how to look at the patient’s entire record through multiple lenses simultaneously for connected care. Determine the best and most cost-efficient plans of care that will improve clinical outcomes and encourage healthier choices.
