Bird & Bird joins Powering Middle East Summit as ‘International Law Partner’ 

The Powering Middle East Summit is pleased to introduce the summit’s ‘International Law Partner’ Bird & Bird. The law firm will bring an invaluable grasp of strategic commercial issues faced by renewable energy innovators, MENA government ministers and industry bodies. Legislative restrictions will play a key part within the POWERINGME agenda, and Bird & Bird, with its combination of global expertise and deep industry knowledge built across Europe, The Middle East and Asia, will be able to address them.

As the Middle East looks to move away from dependence on oil revenues, many international companies are looking to expand, invest in or develop renewable energy projects within the lucrative MENA market. Bird & Bird uses their UAE based team to provide local expertise while demonstrating a deep understanding of renewable energy projects and ‘CleanTech’ innovation within a global context. BIRD&BIRD_POS_LOGO_CMYK_GREEN

Many organisations have sought Bird & Bird’s assistance to invest in or develop technological solutions to combat issues resulting from climate change and energy security. These range from developers or landowners to local authorities and financiers across a range of renewable industries such as solar, hydro and offshore wind power as well as biomass energy. Bird & Bird’s broad experience of the sector  will help to shape the summit agenda and contribute to developing solutions to the most current issues faced by our participants such as  solar and wind feed-in-tariffs, the unbundling of European energy supplies and advice on the usage of ‘Carbon Credits’.

Andrew Renton, Partner at International Energy and Utilities Sector Group, Bird & Bird, said: “We are delighted to be involved in the Powering Middle East Summit as its ‘International Law Partner’. The Summit represents a fantastic opportunity to spearhead new innovation and projects in the region by helping delegates overcome some of the legislative uncertainties which are restricting project implementation. Local authorities, particularly in Jordan, are now setting out attractive incentives to help advance green energy projects. We hope to help companies and innovators looking to build new relationships in this sector capitalise on opportunities that are available to them. ”

Is your organisation developing renewable energy projects within the MENA region? Or are you a public sector official within the MENA renewable energy sector? Delegate passes for our Jordan Powering Middle East Summit are limited. Register your interest at www.ese-power.com or email simon.keen@estratevents.com for further details.

‘Technology Enhanced Homecare Forum’ brings together telehealth expertise and innovation.

eSE is pleased to announce that the UK Technology Enhanced Homecare Forum will take place on October 16th in Manchester. The forum, which is based on the format of the industry-backed Health Informatics Forum, is already attracting strong representation from the public sector with a number of local councils, NHS trusts and care homes sending dweb version PNGelegates.

The Technology Enhanced Homecare Forum (#UKTCF) brings together innovation in telecare services and remote patient monitoring solutions, with public sector expertise across the healthcare sector. The agenda for the three panel sessions will be formulated by an ‘Agenda Advisory Board’ which benefits from senior level expertise and experience, from across the private and public telehealth industry. Attendance for the forum is by invite only and is once again limited to 125, to ensure that genuine and sustainable partnerships are formed, to help implement real solutions which improve service delivery and healthcare management

WSD Action Network figures show that between 1.6 and 1.7 million people in England are already benefitting from telecare services. This growing figure is helping England to take the lead among European countries in producing telehealth innovation and services. However, this area of healthcare is becoming increasingly scrutinised, as restraints in funding highlight the unsustainability of the NHS’s current approach to the care of patients with long term conditions. The number of patients with one or more of these long term conditions is expected to grow by 23% over the next twenty years as the average population age, and patient to doctor ratios continue to increase.

The UKTCF forum will play in a key role in exploring the viability and advancement of private sector telehealth or ‘remote patient monitoring’ solutions, which can help providers remotely monitor patient’s physiological and health status. The forum will also highlight the increase in telecare services, which enables older and vulnerable individuals to continue living independently and safely within their own homes. Patients, who have been able to manage their own conditions, have benefitted from an increased quality of life, less travel for check-ups and fewer unplanned hospital visits. The Whole System Demonstrator study proved that, if used correctly, telehealth services could help to reduce A&E visits by 15% and reduce emergency admissions by 20%.COPYRIGHT SIMON PRICE 07977 073674

The benefits of telehealth and homecare technologies seem apparent, however investment in telehealth technologies from the public sector has continued
to face constraints due to lack of evidence and financial pressures. The UK Technology Enhanced Homecare forum aims to facilitate the relationships between the public and private sector needed to help advance telehealth innovation, which will provide long term benefit to service providers and patients.

A Summary: Leeds UK Health Informatics Forum

live87921_health-economics-uk-logo-2014-web

The second UK Health Informatics Forum in Leeds enjoyed a fantastic turn-out of high profile delegates creating some enthusiastic and heartfelt discussion throughout the day. The forum, which was one of the showcase events within the Grand Départ International Business Festival, brought together a wide range of experts and innovators from across the UK public and private healthcare sector. The aim was to create new, sustainable partnerships and to introduce innovative solutions that can improve service delivery, cost efficiency and working practises throughout the NHS and private hospital groups.

The ‘Agenda Advisory Board’ helped this year’s agenda to build strongly upon the themes raised at our initial Bristol Health Informatics Forum, whilst our partners ensured that innovation and best practise from the UK’s ‘First City of Health and Innovation’ were present throughout. Audience delegates contributed to all of the four interactive panel sessions with a number of challenging questions and thought provoking observations.

A number of the key messages from our Leeds Forum are summarised as follows:

  • There is a need for ‘stronger and clearer’ communication between CCGs and innovation from within the private sector.
  • Panellists and audience delegates questioned whether the healthcare industry can learn from the financial sector? Many comparisons to internet banking services were made during panel sessions
  • NHS culture is currently adverse to risk in terms of technology adoption. A change in culture is needed to advance.
  • NHS organisations should be treated as ‘Investment centres’ rather than cost centres. Organisations need to move away from the focus of technology adoption as a cost saving tool.
  • Patients should be empowered around their own data creation and usage. Patients that can use their own data to determine care will be have better outputs.
  • Does restriction in public sector healthcare technology investment come from a lack of ambition? Or from financial restraints?
  • Panellists debated whether patients need ‘Purchasing Power’ to have a say in healthcare delivery.

Informatics solutions and partnerships introduced throughout the day included NHS trusts that use  mobile phone apps to help monitor patients with long term medical conditions and administer care appropriately, a partnership between Bristol Community Health and TotalMobile, which is helping nurses save at least an hour of their day through innovative mobile working solutions, and Sensium Healthcare’s ‘SensiumVitals’ which enables nurses to monitor their patients condition without routine and invasive checks.
