Digital Health & Care 2020


Scotland's vision for a data-led healthcare revolution

Join us for Scotland’s number one digital transformation conference for public sector health and care professionals. As we move into year two of the national strategy for Digital Health & Care, FutureScot will review progress on key milestones, achievements and exemplars of service transformation from NHS boards and health and social care partnerships.

With input from political and policy leaders – as well as digital technology experts – this one-day conference will equip delegates with the very latest thinking on how to harness data and digital to deliver improved outcomes for people using health and care services in Scotland.


             Key themes:

  • Tracking progress on the six domains of Scotland’s Digital Health & Care strategy;
  • Providing a platform for national and regional exemplars of joined-up digital health and care services – at the ‘digital coalface’;
  • Using data to drive insights and improvements in patient care through the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Cloud-based analytics;
  • The National Digital Platform: its scope, ambition - showcasing 'proof of concept' products;
  • Social care and the next generation of sensor-based assistive technologies in the home.

Supported by the third sector - which provides community care services to those in need - progress towards a streamlined and fully digitised health and care service is being driven from the highest level by the need to drastically reduce hospital admissions as the NHS adapts to rapidly changing demographics, through its own success of keeping people fitter and healthier for longer. The conference will allow those leaders to check their thinking, engage with the wider workforce and provide a vital opportunity for public, private and third sector delegates to network, identify areas for service improvement and quicken the pace of Scotland’s health and care transformation journey.
