Covid-19 has provided a springboard for innovation delivery across the NHS, we have seen unprecedented scale-up of services such as remote consulting, interoperability, the use of data, and of course the use of artificial intelligence.

However, this period of rapid scale-up posed its own challenges for patients and staff across the country. While technologies were rolled out with impressive speed, some aspects of implementation, such as evaluation, co-design, and customisation will necessarily have been a shortcut, and will need revisiting after the emergency phase of the pandemic is over.

Following several surveys conducted by the Health Foundation, it was found that NHS staff surveyed highlighted the issues of ensuring adequate IT and equipment and sufficient staffing as among the top challenges for benefiting fully from recent technological progress.

Age is sometimes cited as a factor affecting attitudes to technology and this was apparent in public surveys conducted with a larger proportion of younger people reporting positive experiences than the population as a whole, and a slightly larger proportion of those age 55 and older reporting negative experiences.

Our upcoming conference will open the debate on the key challenges and trends affecting the secondary care sector, key learning points will include:

Coordination and interoperability

Staffing and tech equality

Innovation and intelligent automation

Clinical tools showcase

Tech leadership and development
