The recent pandemic has been an eye-opener, globally, leading to a collaborative human effort and leapfrog in technological innovations and human networking.

Connecting digital systems and empowering people are at the forefront of NHS Innovation. To truly get the most out of NHS patient data systems they must be digital and interoperable. This means that they are able to communicate with one another so that data can flow seamlessly between different IT systems and across health and care settings.

Technology is also putting people’s healthcare in their own hands, digital services and support are empowering people to take control of their health and care through secure online access to clinicians, personalised health information, digital tools and advice that helps them to better manage their conditions.

Our Digital Hospital Event series shines a light on the best use of technology and innovation across NHS trusts, the event will provide key updates on national projects including the Digital Aspirants programme and Sustainability and Transformation Projects while sharing on the ground best practices from ICS’s an award-winning Regional team.

So…What Exactly Is A Digital Hospital? (Confirmed)

James Freed
Chief Digital and Information Officer
Health Education England
Building a ‘Digital Hospital’ isn’t all about glittering tech and a lot of chrome. In this opening keynote, James Freed will discuss the real job digitally and healthcare leaders have in focusing on what matters most – the health and healthcare experience of our patients – and the role digital capability plays in making the most impactful improvements.


Improving productivity through tech (Confirmed)

Jade Ackers
NHS England and NHS Improvement
Accelerating the adoption of evidence-based digital tools to improve productivity across the NHS and deliver care and treatments to more patients, improve the quality of care, save time, lower costs, reduce waste, and increase patient and staff satisfaction.


Advanced Analytics - Real Time Data Analytics & Actionable Intelligence

Eghosa Bazuaye
Associate Director of Information
Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust
Claire Burnett
Sepsis Lead Nurse and Critical Care Outreach Nurse
Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust

Main Sponsor - Trustmarque

It’s no surprise that Healthcare Managers are increasingly overwhelmed by data and reports. And this pressure is expected to increase with the digital hospital programmes. Being overloaded with data has an impact on the efficiency of staff and it also increases the risk of critical information for decision making being missed. Royal Berkshire Foundation Trust (RBFT), one of the first trusts to adopt the Bedrock Data Warehouse and the real time connector, is developing its actionable intelligence and data assistant platform.  Designed to streamline the way staff interact and access real time data by helping managers focus on actionable intelligence, it tracks KPIs in real time and helps to notify managers when they need to take action. Over the last few months RBFT has developed TiNA based real-time analytics solutions to help support the management of deteriorating patients and the efficiency of patient flow.

Claire Burnet , Lead sepsis and critical care outreach team nurse would describe the implementation of the TiNa’s, real time analytics solution in supporting the management of deteriorating patients and how this digital solution is helping to improve both patient safety and clinical data quality

The next stages are in the implementation of AI within the Trust to increase our automation as well our predictive capability; the RBFT informatics team is working closely with the University of Reading’s Informatics research department to further develop our AI and advanced analytics in the digital Health space. This would enable the Trust to make more effective use of its valuable data asset and would allow us to more easily identify variation in clinical and operational processes and outcomes. 

The session will be followed by a Q&A with Trustmarque and RBFT. You can also join Trustmarque for a live demo of Bedrock, now hosted on Microsoft Azure.

Stepping Up – using robotic gait training to improve walking outcomes in people with stroke (Confirmed)

Alahna Cullen
Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist in Stroke
University Hospitals Dorset NHS Foundation Trust
There is clear evidence that rehabilitation intensity is an important factor in determining physical outcomes in people with stroke. Translating this evidence into practice is a clinical challenge – in part because rehabilitation is resource intensive. Augmenting conventional therapy with technology provides one solution to the intensity challenge. Yet translation of technological solutions into rehabilitation settings is slow. This presentation will discuss the role that different technologies can play in supporting rehabilitation delivery, and the enablers/barriers to implementation. A case study outlining how one NHS stroke service has risen to the challenge – as the first in the UK to implement electromechanical gait training in an acute stroke setting – will be presented

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.

They are also very helpful and timely in their responses, which has made working with them very easy “
