The development of digital health and care services is seen as critical to support the personalisation of services, integration of the NHS and social care, to manage limited public resources, and to grow the global market for UK industry. The challenges are partly technical, relating to making software and devices plug and play and work together, but they can only be addressed if organisations across the sector recognise the compelling business case for cooperating to create new consumer and citizen-led markets.

The challenge for the NHS and social care is to find new ways of working, and to share information with the citizen – which will in turn bring radical changes in culture and organisational processes. Interest in moving towards affordable, credible and well-marketed digital health and care services is significant and global. The market and service environment will change, and the UK has to find ways to respond creatively to develop sustainable UK services and develop a leadership position globally. The assisted living technology sector is coming together to cooperate to provide the technical underpinning for these new ways of working and new markets. With the support of national regulators, standards bodies, service commissioners, providers and consumer and citizen representative organisations, a consortium approach, provisionally titled i3i, is being introduced at the IET on the 12th of July.

This interactive briefing session is relevant to those senior health and social care providers, commissioners, industry and consumer representatives who will be delivering new digital information and support services.The event is is free to attend but available to limited numbers only.
