Healthcare SIG event - 'What future evolution of remote monitoring in the community will speed up its impact on hospital admission and bed occupancy?'

Start date/time :  17:45 4th October 2016
End date/time :  20:30 4th October 2016
Venue :  UTC Cambridge, Robinson Way, Cambridge CB2 0SZ

This first in a series of events in association with Cambridge University Health Partners (CUHP) will take place at the UTC Cambridge. Remote patient monitoring does have some impact on hospital admissions but the demand greatly outstrips the current technological capacity. Bringing together the different disciplines represented by Primary, Secondary, Social, Community and Technology care, this series of co-organised conferences will investigate, debate and ultimately recommend a future form of remote monitoring in the community which further reduces hospital admission and enhances bed management. Speakers are Dr James Morrow, BM, BCh, LLB, GP & Managing Partner, Granta Medical Practices, Evelyn Barker, COO of Cambridge University Hospitals and Lucy Forrest, Assistive Technology Manager, Cambridgeshire County Council and Sajan Khosla, Head of Health Informatics at Astra Zeneca.


This first conference will seek to lay bare the realities of hospital admissions and the challenges associated with bed allocation from different perspectives. The speakers will present and discuss whether future remote monitoring and remote care services established in the community could provide the essential solution or are they a dangerous vision? Participants from across the health/social/technology sector are invited to attend this series of events to understand the problem and form part of the community creating positive informed change.

Speakers include:

The Healthcare SIG is championed by Rob Blake of Philips Research Laboratories, Peter Ferguson of ARM, Collette Johnson of Plextek Consulting, Primrose Mbanefo of Accenture and Paul Winter of TTP Group.
