How digital applications can help bring care closer to home - Cross-Sector Programme

10.00, Thursday 20 April 2023

Life Sciences Hub Wales, Cardiff

3 Assembly Square, CF10 4PL

The next event of the Cross-Sector Programme (run in partnership between the Academy of Medical Sciences and Life Sciences Hub Wales) will bring together innovators and researchers across careers and fields to discuss effective adoption of digital applications and how to bring care closer to home, while driving forward innovation.

With the unprecedented pressures across the NHS and social care, we must utilise digital technologies to help people manage their own health more effectively. Digital technologies will be critical to increase capacity and shift the balance of care from the clinic to the home or community.

This event will raise awareness of the benefits of cross-sector collaboration, how digital applications can be effective tools and examples of digital care used successfully at home. Join us to understand how the introduction of digital applications can help to bring care closer to home for many patients in Wales.

The event will include:

  • Introductions of the Cross Sector Programme and networking hubs from the Academy of Medical Sciences and Life Sciences Hub Wales.
  • Inspiring talks from Managing Director of Romilly Life Sciences- Professor Peter Bannister and digital healthcare company
  • Table discussions and networking opportunities.
  • Extended time to network with other participants to find areas of common interest, explore further connections and potential collaborations.
