Project Description

The rising demand for services, constrained funding and a multitude of workforce challenges require us to think differently about the way we deliver health and care services to meet people’s needs and expectations. Digital tools are key part of the answer to this set of challenges – technology has the potential to revolutionise the way health and care is delivered.

The development of New Models of Care, Vanguards, Multi-Speciality Community Providers are all the intended outcomes of the Five Year Forward Plan and General Practice Forward View. These new strategic initiatives are also driving different behaviours and the need from those within primary care to develop new skills around leadership, change management and programme and project management to plan for a future built around ‘working at scale’ models and with effective resilient teams.

  • Duration: All day

  • Location: On-site/locally

Who should attend?

Don't miss opportunity to work with leading specialists in a series of full day workshops specifically focused on the ‘business’ aspects of General Practice.
  • General Practitioners

  • Practice Managers

  • Senior Practice Nurses

  • GP Administrator Managers

The starting point for any project introducing new technology should be the perspective of the end users. Technological solutions should be co-produced with people who use services and clinicians to ensure that the solutions are anchored in their needs and experiences. Engaging staff in the development process, understanding how they work and want to work in future, and providing ongoing support and training, is crucial to the success. There is national policy emphasis on enabling supported self-care and the shift towards out of hospital service provision. It is more important than ever before for health and care services to provide tools and information to support people and communities to have greater control over their own health and wellbeing. At the same time, technological opportunities can enable the health and care workforce to work differently, and in ways that are better for patients.

In particular, the developments in smart phone technology offer an unprecedented opportunity to provide immediate information and support to people, wherever and whenever they need it. As a result, the market for medical and health care apps is rapidly expanding with 165,000 health care apps currently available for mobile devices. Devices and ‘wearables’ are also becoming increasingly common, collecting sensory information, such as heart rate, blood pressure and steps taken, on a real-time basis.

In isolation, small-scale technology projects will not bring about the fundamental shift envisioned in the Forward View, but combining technologies with new ways of working has the potential to transform the way services are delivered.

Workshop Agenda

Below is an outline of the proposed agenda, if you have any questions please get in touch.

  • Support to vanguards:
    • population health analytics
    • information governance and data sharing
    • reducing health inequalities
11.00 BREAK
11.15 Harnessing technology

Explore how digital solutions are helping health and care to respond to the needs of patients, rising demand for services, constraints on funding and many workforce challenges.

  • Implementing and operating digital technologies within their care models.
  • Solving commonly experienced problems.
  • Resources and tools to identify their technology requirements – and helps with
