eSE is pleased to confirm our Technology Enhanced Homecare Forum format has been based upon the industry-backed UK Health Informatics forum series (You can see the video here), this means the themes for the Manchester forum have been developed by an ‘Agenda Advisory Board’, comprised of industry leaders, which are leading by example and implementing a number of innovative telehealth partnerships. Board members have contributed their own issues and experiences, and by working closely with our Summit Director, we have built an agenda that is inclusive of the most current issues restricting telehealth projects across the public and private homecare sector.
We are pleased to welcome board members Annie Thompson (Technology Enabled Care Services Lead), Dr Martin MacShane (Director of Long Term Conditions) and Paul Marriott (Telehealth Lead Consultant) from NHS England. Key issues raised by our NHS England delegation include the evaluation of ROI for telehealth systems, how NHS ‘tariff payment’ systems can block innovation and stifle remote technology, and exploration of the Multi-Matrix TECS model for joining health and wellbeing. Dr Malcolm Fisk (Co-Director of Age Research) joins us from Coventry University and will highlight European perspectives and code of conduct for telehealth services. Joanne Harding (Associate Director of Transformation & Innovation) comes from Staffordshire & Stoke on Trent Partnership NHS Trust, she has identified apps which support self-care and issues around video consultations as key agenda points. Dr Helen Tucker (Vice President – Community Hospitals Association) and Julia Clarke (Chief Executive – Bristol Community Health CIC) together bring practical experience to UKTCF, exploring how telehealth solutions have the potential to empower and promote self-care within a community care setting. The final board member is Trevor Single (CEO) of the Telecare Services Association, Trevor is keen to address the barriers to mainstream adoption of telehealth and telecare throughout the UK.
Our board members will play a key role at forum chairing sessions and building the panel session topics. Remember, all UKTCF delegates have the chance to contribute their own points to the forum agenda during our straight forward registration process.
