The Agenda

Healthcare benefits from advanced analytics; considerations for NHS organisations

Professor Neil Sebire
Professor of Paediatric and Developmental Pathology
Great Ormond Street Hospital
This session will provide you with an introduction into the GOSH DRE/DRIVE clinical informatics unit, DRIVE aims harness the powerful combination of rich health data with data science and digital innovation and develop scalable solutions to enhance health services not only for GOSH patients but across the wider NHS.


Joining the dots: Using data and analytics to deliver on the promise of Integrated Care

Max Kenney
Senior Manager
James Don-Carolis
Managing Director
Joining data together into a 360-degree patient view is a vital enabler for Integrated Care, but it’s not the final solution. This session goes a step further, exploring how data is organised, presented and delivered to clinical decision-makers to ensure it drives insight and, ultimately, better patient care.


Networking and Panel Discussions


Driving better healthcare through the use of data

Dr Jay Verma
GP Partner
Shakespeare Health Centre
Dr Sukin Natarajan
Business partner
Heathrow Medical Centre
Comments have been made that data is the new oil although it can often be very difficult and rather time consuming to fully understand and appreciate the data we see. We talk about the approach of two practices who were inquisitive of their data and how it led them to drive change and influence other organisations to do the same.


A Holistic Approach to Protecting Against Ransomware

Paul Brunyee
EMEA Pre Sales Director
A Holistic Approach to Protecting Against Ransomware In this session, we will discuss our holistic approach to data protection and safeguarding against the impact of ransomware – helping public bodies to meet their obligations regarding ransomware protection and prevention in line with the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) guidelines.


Networking and Panel Discussions


Making NHS data work for everyone

Eleonora Harwich
Director of Research & Head of Digital and Tech Innovation
Making NHS data work for everyone • Uses of healthcare data • The value exchange • Keeping society in the loop • The healthtech ecosystem • National strategy + much more


A national population segmentation analysis dashboard

Jess Hicks
Associate Director of Advanced Analytics
A national population segmentation analysis dashboard As health and care systems seek to make better use of data to improve planning and decision-making, a new population insight tool has been made available to NHS commissioners. NHS Arden & GEM CSU has been working in partnership with NHS England and Outcomes Based Healthcare (OBH) to develop and build a national population segmentation analysis dashboard. The dashboard is available to all users of the NHS Viewpoint performance portal and will play a key part in helping systems move towards a Population Health Management approach. Based on the Bridges to Health segmentation model, the dashboard uses 14 national datasets to enable analysis by core population segments. Segments can be viewed at a regional, STP, CCG and PCN level with visualisations for age, ethnicity, deprivation, spend, prevalence and utilisation. The dashboard includes a COVID-19 view and has already support advanced analytics units to build risk and probability models, particularly around vulnerable patients.

Convenzis Healthcare Event testimonials

What our clients say about us

It was great to join the Convenzis team again for the patient flow event. As always, the team were incredibly accommodating and happy to help. 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.


Covenzis delivered an excellent meeting like always - a hubbub of activity focused on future developments within NHS pathology laboratories

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!
