“I really enjoyed the conference, and the speakers were excellent. Thank you also for providing a seamless, quality online conference experience as well. University Hospitals Dorset NHS Foundation Trust

Covid-19 has provided a springboard for innovation delivery across the NHS, we have seen unprecedented scale-up of services such as remote consulting, interoperability, the use of data, and of course the use of artificial intelligence.

However, this period of rapid scale-up posed its own challenges for patients and staff across the country. While technologies were rolled out with impressive speed, some aspects of implementation, such as evaluation, co-design, and customisation will necessarily have been a shortcut, and will need revisiting after the emergency phase of the pandemic is over.

Following several surveys conducted by the Health Foundation, it was found that NHS staff surveyed highlighted the issues of ensuring adequate IT and equipment and sufficient staffing as among the top challenges for benefiting fully from recent technological progress.

Age is sometimes cited as a factor affecting attitudes to technology and this was apparent in public surveys conducted with a larger proportion of younger people reporting positive experiences than the population as a whole, and a slightly larger proportion of those age 55 and older reporting negative experiences.

How can AI help achieve a patient-centered NHS by 2030?

Dr. Gege Gatt
CEO
EBO

At EBO, our 2030 vision for the NHS is to support the development of healthcare by making it highly accessible, multi-lingual and truly patient-centered. We utilise AI to transform healthcare from a heroic, reactive, slow, and complicated approach to a routine, preemptive, fast, and uncomplicated one.

Our goal is to shift healthcare from being corrective to curative, from late-stage to early-stage, from de-personalised to personalised, and from in-person to accessible anywhere. By effectively utilising today’s available technology, we can improve the quality of care for patients and make the most of the NHS workforce's potential.

Join us to explore how we can work together to achieve this vision and create the future digital hospital that restores patient agency.

With the end and closure of the programme, Dimitri will present key findings gathered through interviews, questionnaires, case studies, on:

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.

Catalyst BI -

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.

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!
