Wednesday Webinars

Connected Nottinghamshire Wednesday 3rd March 10:00-11:30

On 3rd March, we will be joined by the main parties involved in creating Connected Nottinghamshire, the first Integrated Care System (ICS) in England that includes an integration between the NHS App and the PHR, Patients Know Best.

Connected Nottinghamshire is the digital programme across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care System.  In 2019, the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICS selected Patients Know Best and NHS Digital to develop a partnership solution which would offer their population all the PKB features, functionality and data, inside the national NHS App interface. As a result, PKB became one of the first products to integrate with NHS login’s new encrypted single sign-on and the first personal health record to integrate with the NHS App.

Data Protection Post Brexit: The Top Tips for Digital Health Companies March 24th 10:00-11:30

One of the biggest issues I find when assessing proposals or talking to DHACA members is that there is still a significant misunderstanding of the importance of building data protection in at the very start of any development plan. The UK’s Data Protection Act (“DPA”) essentially mirrors the GDPR and adds further to it; leaving the EU has not resulted in any significant change in impact. It is therefore particularly appropriate that Brown Rudnick has kindly offered to deliver our XVIIIth webinar on 24th March.

Department for International Trade (DIT)

Last week the DIT launched their ‘The First 100 Playbook’ to promote British innovators in Digital Health who are ready to go global and participate in that ever expanding worldwide opportunity. The DIT will be promoting digital health to overseas buyers and creating business opportunities via their teams in 96 markets around the world. The DIT hopes that these First 100, who incidentally include a significant number of DHACA members and alumni, will find new frontiers to make an impact in building the basis for the healthcare of the future: personalised, digital by default and truly patient centric. It’s well worth a read.

DIT in Warsaw is inviting proposals from British Healthcare and Life Sciences companies to join a virtual event on Wednesday 10th March to connect and meet with targeted Polish businesses, government officials, and key opinion leaders from across the Polish healthcare and life sciences sectors, opening up a range of commercial opportunities. Please contact Magdalena to register and if you have any questions:

On the 2nd of March at 09:00 GMT, Minister Graham Stuart will launch DIT’s “most ambitious ever” Trade Mission, the ‘Partnering with Japan – Spring ’21 Free Trade Agreement Series’ which aims to achieve maximum exposure and uptake of the brilliant opportunities for business arising from this historic achievement. There will be a specific Health Tech & Life Sciences event on the Tuesday 16th of March. To register for this please click here.
