The keynote line-up for the show, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham on 31 October and 1 November, has been announced, and includes Will Smart and Keith McNeil, NHS England’s first chief information officer and first chief clinical information officer.
Also speaking across the nine conference streams are Juliet Bauer, NHS England’s director of digital experience, Robert Varnam, director of GP development, Claire Murdoch, clinical lead for mental health, and Kenny Gibson, director of public health commissioning.
Jamie Hill, exhibition director from Informa Life Sciences, the business intelligence, publishing and events group behind the event, said: “We have been working with an advisory board to bring the very best and most relevant speakers to ehi LIVE 2017.
“We would like to thank our advisors – Dr Harpreet Sood, associate CCIO at NHS England, Dr Indra Joshi, clinical lead for digital urgent and emergency care at NHS England, and Dr Mark Davies, a non-executive director of the BMJ – for their input into what is going to be an exciting and thought-provoking conference.”
ehi LIVE is the UK’s leading event for healthcare IT, and this year it is celebrating its tenth edition. To mark the anniversary, the conference programme has been refreshed and revitalised.
Visitors will have more time to see the keynote speakers and case studies – while getting out onto the exhibition floor, where 150 companies will be showcasing their latest products and solutions.
The nine conference streams are anchored by the popular integration and interoperability strand, a new NHS Future Leadership Forum, and revamped CIO and CCIO roundtables.
Running alongside them will be one-day events on cyber security, imaging and diagnostics, acute and social care integration, mental health, primary care, and population health management.
Further keynote speakers include Dan Taylor, the head of cyber security at NHS Digital, and Dermot Ryan, programme director for HSCN, the network that will shortly start to replace N3.
In another development, the ehi AWARDS 2017 are being co-located with the show for the first time. The ehi AWARDS 2017 shortlist was announced on 27 September, and representatives of the 49 shortlisted individuals and organisations will make their way to Birmingham for a judging day on 30 October.
The winners will be announced at the show on 31 October, and will then celebrate their success at a drinks reception, ehi LATE, which should be an unparalleled opportunity for networking.
