The Fundamental Role of Technology in Transforming the NHS - Primary care is evolving to meet the challenges currently facing the NHS and to deliver, in line with national policies and commitments, a health system that is paper-free at the point of care. Technology is fundamental to this evolution and brings benefits to both patients and healthcare professionals, empowering patients and improving access to services, reducing bureaucracy for professionals, making time and cost efficiencies, delivering greater equality in terms of standard of care provision and ultimately, improved health outcomes. NHS England is leading the development of a digital primary care strategy to support this evolution of primary care and drive patient engagement with digital services, address gaps in capabilities, align contractual and funding processes, embed digital services into everyday commissioning and encourage innovation at a national and local level.

Tracey is Head of Digital Primary Care Development at NHS England with responsibility for the digital primary care strategy. This includes supporting general practice with a choice of high quality clinical IT systems, tailored to local requirements, while enabling the flexibility and innovation to meet current and future service needs. Tracey has over 24 years’ experience within the NHS that has involved leading service management, performance improvement and large scale transformational change programmes both enabled through technology and organisational development. Tracey has worked across national, regional and local levels in a variety of health care settings. Currently Tracey is driving the programme for the Prime Ministers GP Access Fund to support the delivery of new and enhanced technology solutions that will significantly improve patient’s access to services through innovative care models, making them available through digital enablement to all users of health and care data to support the delivery of better, safer care. Tracey also leads on developing a digital strategy for children’s health that will enable appropriate access to information for all involved in the care of children to promote the best possible outcomes for their health and wellbeing.

Professor Simon Brake

Delivering integrated records – a practical perspective - This session will consider the realities of integrated clinical record systems, organisational boundaries, system limitations, data sharing agreements, and human complexities. We will consider the experience of a combined community and acute frailty project, a twelve month programme span, the implications of new technology, how it’s progressed, and how patient outcomes have improved. And, of course, whether it works!

Simon has been qualified since July 1995, having graduated from the University of Warwick, and gained his professional association membership of the IHM (the Institute of Healthcare Management) in 1996, appointed a fellow of the IHM (by Assessment) in 2004, and a Masters of Public Administration (MPA) from the University of Warwick (2007) and a Post Graduate Certificate in Conflict Resolution Studies (2008) from Coventry University, and is a member of The Association of Directors of Social Services (ADASS). Simon has worked in a variety of general and senior management roles across health and social care, within the National Health Service in hospitals, commissioning, and central government policy until 2006, then as a senior officer for Coventry City Council, and since 2015 as a chief officer working across the NHS & Local Government for Coventry & Rugby.

Suma Surendranath

Suma Surendranath

Integrating technology in the management of Parkinson’s - As a complex condition, it is often difficult to truly appreciate how Parkinson’s symptoms can be best managed and the impact of treatment on quality of life. Technology offers a means of understanding symptoms and supporting people with Parkinson’s to take control by engaging in activities to support their health. The presentation will look at how technology can be a beneficial adjunct to clinical management that benefits both professionals and people affected by Parkinson’s.

Suma joined Parkinson's UK in October 2012 as Professional Education and Engagement Manager. A physiotherapist by background (specialising in rheumatology and chronic pain management), she moved into the voluntary sector in 2008 when she joined Macmillan Cancer Support. There she was responsible for the launch of the first cancer-specific version of the renowned Chronic Disease Self-Management Programme before managing the strategic development of all learning and development for people affected by cancer. Suma's current role is to support the activity of the Excellence Network, a new initiative bringing together health and social care professionals, people affected by Parkinson’s and Parkinson’s UK in a collaborative partnership looking at innovative ways (including the use of technological advances) to transform services across the UK.


Professor Ruth Chambers OBE

Technology enabled care is a must for delivery of care for long term conditions – now! - This presentation relays insights from those who have made technology enabled care services (TECS) happen in health or social care settings. It captures how organisational and frontline challenges have been overcome to achieve buy in by commissioners and managers, engagement with patients or service users, and adoption by practitioner users of TECS. The focus is on ‘how to do it’ – redesigning services, setting up support structures, making delivery of care happen in virtual ways.

Ruth is an experienced GP - having worked for more than 35 years in different practices alongside many lead roles in academia, Royal College, Department of Health, learning & development, with various clinical interests – all focused on disseminating best practice in the clinical management of long term conditions and patient care; with several publications on the evidence base for digital delivery of care in high impact journals. Ruth is a well published author – of hundreds of articles and research papers, and 70 books. She is the Long Term Conditions priority lead for the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN). She’s always thinking of new ideas - and actually puts some into practice, testing out innovations in creative ways, then disseminating learning as widely as energy levels and opportunities allow. Currently that is as clinical telehealth lead for Stoke-on-Trent CCG and clinical lead for a WMAHSN funded project to apply technology enabled care services (TECS) as an exemplar of Person-Centred Care, along patient pathways in different health and social care settings. Ruth’s new role as Chair of Stoke-on-Trent CCG brings in further commissioner interest in adopting TECS as an integral part of delivery of health and social care.
