Virtual Conference

King’s Fund: Digital innovations in health and care: looking ahead

Liz Ashall-Payne will speak on Wednesday 26th May at 9:35 am on the panel: Harnessing the digital revolution for the social care of the future. Tickets are available on the King’s Fund website.


The long-overdue digital revolution in health and care has been accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic in ways that would have been unimaginable just a year ago. The advent of technology and its rapid progress have touched every area of care delivery. From devices that facilitate communication between patients and clinicians, through data-driven systems that challenge traditional thinking around health, to wearables providing patients with unprecedented independence, technology has delivered promising possibilities for the future of health care and is starting to deliver on those promises, despite some issues and concerns.

There is still a lot to achieve to deliver on the potential of technology, and the digital transformation of the NHS will be at the forefront of healthcare services for many years to come. Join us for this virtual conference, as we explore the new and exciting digital innovations that have emerged during the pandemic, and assess their potential impact and benefits. We will hear from leaders of national bodies, international experts, industry representatives, patients, and policy experts on how we can ensure the digital revolution delivers to its fullest potential while attempting to prevent any negative consequences. Join us to celebrate the new era of digitally enabled care and to discuss how we can enhance good outcomes and facilitate progress. This event is designed for the tech-friendly, the tech skeptical, and for everyone who has realized that no matter where one stands on the value of digital health care, it is a future that cannot be ignored.
