NHS Expo 2019 - Highlights 1

heartbeat will be at NHS Health and Care Innovation Expo 2019, on 4-5 September in Manchester Central, talking to healthcare leaders about how Patient-Reported Outcomes can transform care delivery!

The largest NHS-led event of the year is taking place in Manchester Central on the 4th and 5th September. With a focus on the NHS Long Term Plan, Expo unites more NHS, local government and social care leaders than any other health and care event in the United Kingdom.

What is NHS Health and Care Innovation Expo?

The NHS Health and Care Innovation Expo is the biggest NHS-led event of the year. Held every September at Manchester Central, it attracts around 5,000 people from the NHS, social care, local government, the third sector and the commercial sector.

Expo 2019’s focus is dedicated to realising the aims set out in the NHS Long Term Plan. NHS Health and Care Innovation Expo 2019 inspires leaders and clinicians to make improvements for patients and service users – almost three-quarters pledge to start new projects or initiatives after visiting. It unites people from right across the health and social care sector to share perspectives, learn from one another, and find solutions. Expo informs you about the future: it’s where you’ll hear the big announcements about the future of the NHS and social care, and meet the people leading transformation.

Programme Highlights

The agenda for Expo 2019 is packed with numerous keynote addresses and sessions ranging from the role data can play in the provision of improved healthcare to tackling the upcoming challenges that an aging population brings. The agenda will include the topic of integrated care systems and how the NHS and local governments should be working together to cater the health needs of communities. Amongst some of the highlights are:

This session will explore the opportunities offered by the NCIP portal, which draws together existing information from different data sources, including Hospital Episode Statistics (HES), and presents the information at consultant level via a series of procedure specific dashboards.

Wed, 04.09.2019 | 12:30 – 13:30 
Location: The Arena  | “What matters to you?” – How making it personal can deliver better outcomes for people and the services they use.
