2nd Healthcare Digital Technology Congress: Health systems for a global market

In November 2018 The Convenzis Group have developed a 1-day conference that will take a look at how the National Health Service is currently harnessing and adopting technology. The event will shine a light on how technology can drive productivity and slash budget spending.

Events key topics:

  • The Global Digital Exemplars
  • Local Digital Roadmaps
  • Digital Maturity Assessments
  • GDPR Compliance
  • The New Clinical Digital Council / Role & Aims
  • 5 Year Forward View / Next Steps
  • Paper Free at the point of care

The Deputy Chair of the new Clinical Digital Council argues that for effective digital health services and systems to succeed across the NHS, we need agreed digital health standards which cover evidence, regulation and clinical safety:

The global market for digital health is expected to reach almost £43billion by 2018 and £408billion by 2025.

Health IT systems represent the largest market both globally and, in the UK, where they contribute 66 per cent of digital health sales. But the most promising market for growth is mobile health with sales of apps and wearables predicted to increase by 35 per cent in the UK by 2018.

Join us at our 2nd Healthcare Digital Technology Congress to gain first-hand insight into the plans that have been set in place to ensure the NHS is driving towards being a world leader in harnessing healthcare technology, you will get the chance to listen, learn & engage with some of the most well followed and reputable speakers in the country.

We look forward to meeting you on the day.

The quality of attendees is always of a high standard and relevant to the patient flow and to us also. We continue to have great discussions and footfall around our stand with no need to try and encourage people to come and see us. Really positive event for us and we look forward to working with Convenzis in the future.

My colleague and I presented at the NHS workforce conference 2023, 19 September. The support and guidance we received from the Convenzis team in the run up to our presentation slot was great, well timed and perfectly pitched. The event itself, again was expertly organised. The conference was well Chaired by Sean, who was very engaging. As an audience member as well as a panel member, I would definitely work with the Convenzis team again.

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!
