Review of 2017 event

Digital Health & Care Scotland

In 2017 Holyrood Connect hosted our annual Digital Health & Care conference showcased the latest technologies for health and care in Scotland. We offered a platform for delegates to discuss key issues, learn from a range of expert speakers from within Scotland and beyond and network in an environment created for sharing best practice.

The 2017 event was bigger than ever, spanning two days, and allowed delegates to: 

  • Hear from key innovators, digital health experts and frontline care agencies about how technology can achieve longer, healthier lives in Scotland
  • Put patients at the centre of digital strategies and empower them through technology
  • Evaluate the Scottish Governments eHealth Strategy and prepare for an update in 2017
  • Identify and overcome barriers to digital health
  • Replicate elements of successful digital health and care programmes from beyond Scotland
  • Use data and informatics analysis to improve health and care delivery in Scotland
