Exploring Intelligent Interfaces: Healthcare Digital Technology Congress

Our Healthcare Digital Technology conference series is fast becoming our most well-followed events, having said this, we are pleased to share details of our 4th Exploring Intelligent Interfaces: Healthcare Digital Technology Congress

As stated in the newly developed NHS Long Term Plan, virtually every aspect of modern life has been and will continue to be, radically reshaped by innovation and technology.

Sustained advances in computing and the democratisation of information are driving choice and control throughout our daily lives, giving us heightened expectations around digital services.

Good progress has been made in delivering the plans set out in the Five Year Forward View, with many new or enhanced digital and technology systems and services provided over the last three years. Citizens have access to high-quality NHS information and digital services through the transformed website. WI-FI is being installed across the whole NHS estate, and The NHS app is being rolled out on a national scale which will provide access to NHS 111 services and Their GP record, it will also allow booking appointments.

Join us on the 6th of November 2019 at the Exploring Intelligent Interfaces: Healthcare Digital Technology Congress as we discuss the key priorities that will drive digital transformation throughout the NHS.

Fundamental Digital Aspects of the Long-Term Plan:

Create straightforward digital access to NHS services, and help patients and their carers manage their health.

  • Ensure that clinicians can access and interact with patient records and care plans wherever they are.
  • Use decision support and artificial intelligence (AI) to help clinicians in applying best practices, eliminate unwarranted variation across the whole pathway of care, and support patients in managing their health and condition.
  • Use predictive techniques to help local health systems to plan care for populations.
  • Use intuitive tools to capture data as a by-product of care in ways that empower clinicians and reduce the administrative burden.
  • Protect patients’ privacy and give them control over their medical records.
  • Link clinical, genomic and other data to support the development of new treatments to improve the NHS, making data captured for care available for clinical research, and publishing, as open data, aggregate metrics about NHS performance and services.
  • Ensure NHS systems and NHS data are secure through implementation of security, monitoring systems and staff education.
  • Mandate and rigorously enforce technology standards (as described in The Future of Healthcare) to ensure data is interoperable and accessible.
  • Encourage the world-leading health IT industry in England with a supportive environment for software developers and innovators.

November’s conference will bring together 12 industry-leading speakers & 10 strategically chosen commercial sector service providers that will give delegates a 360-degree view of the issues and faces and services available to help drive technology throughout the NHS.

Convenzis Healthcare Event testimonials

What our clients say about us

Working with Convenzis is a stress-free and a rewarding experience, with fantastic engagement from a highly targeted and relevant audience


I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!


In view of the recent NHS Oncology Conference organised by CONVENZIS which was sponsored by Pascoe Healthcare Ltd, CONVENZIS exhibited professionalism through credible organisation, invitation of delegates/respectable Speakers and general conduct of the entire conference. This has also shown that CONVENZIS is a great partner in business which is fundamental to ROI of partnering Companies even in the wake of the pandemic.

Pascoe Healthcare

“We’ve worked with the Convenzis team for several years and their events are a regular occurrence for us. Not only is the content always extremely topical, but the speakers are always excellent and the support from the team ahead of and during the events is exceptional. The team are incredibly receptive to feedback and always goes above and beyond – a real pleasure to work with!”


“It has been a pleasure to work with Matt and Dan for the past few events. Everything has always run smoothly and we’ve always managed to gather a large number of interested parties due to the events they have hosted.
