Last week we had the pleasure of attending and sponsoring the Digital Healthcare: Cutting Edge Innovation conference. Hosted at the America Square Conference centre in London, the conference had a first class line up of speakers, who provided attendees with insightful developments happening within the NHS. We had some great conversations regarding the frustrations many organisations are having with adopting technologies within the NHS. The eShare stand was active throughout the conference with people taking a keen interest in discussing how they can improve on their security and how to go from paper to paperless meetings.
We also were able to sit in on some fantastic talks concerning the NHS striving to modernise into the digital era. Listening to the talk from Dr N Ralph from NHS Education, it was interesting to find out that a from a survey of over 1600 participants between the 6th of July and the 30th September 2017 that 64% of workers within the NHS were using their own devices to help them do their job and only 6% of workers do not own a tablet or smart phone. With the workforce of the NHS becoming more tech savvy, the opportunities are there to embrace technology at all levels. This is where eShare believe they can help organisations effectively run their boards securely and efficiently.
We also had a fantastic opportunity for our very own Alasdair Ward, Client Relations Manager and David Richardson, Business Development, to speak about how digital transformation needs to start with the top of organisations. From looking at how we have helped Derbyshire Community Health Services on their digital journey to discussing recent guidance from NHS Digital regarding the adoption of cloud solutions, it opened up some great questions around boards and board portal security.
David Richardson eShare’s Business Development Executive said:
“From the conversations we had on the day, it was clear to see that many healthcare organisations are frustrated with the lack of technology provided and that is down to them independently if they wish to embark on adopting any technical solutions. Discussing a few of our case studies and highlighting how we have helped many other healthcare organisations digitise their board meetings and save them time and money. It was great to see how much enthusiasm everyone had for improving governance and I look forward carrying on these conversations and helping people.”
While the deadlines for the NHS to go completely paperless have been moved back on several occasions, the original deadline being 2020, the future of the NHS remains undoubtedly digital. eShare is proud to be a part of providing the solution in providing more transparency and accountability.
