WIN Conference – 11 December 2014

Thank you for attending the West Midlands Health Informatics Network Conference 2014 in Coventry on 11 December 2014. The aims of the conference were to showcase the use, innovation and research of health informatics in the region. The event also aimed to enable the sharing of good practice and experience from those working in this area throughout various healthcare settings regionally and also nationally.

We had an exciting programme, with keynotes, thematic tracks and poster sessions. The Conference was supported by the West Midlands AHSN and held at the University of Warwick. Thank you to all participants - we were delighted to welcome you all!

There will be 4 conference tracks that will cover various Health Informatics topics. These tracks, while specific to the chosen theme, will all have cross-cutting topics, such as digital technology; patient empowerment; co-production in healthcare; development processes and implementation into healthcare settings; governance, security, privacy and confidentiality aspects of health data.

Track 1: mHealth and Telehealth
This track covers mobile health and telehealth solutions in improving healthcare system processes, collecting and retrieving medical data and for patients to be able to better manage chronic conditions. Topics include, but are not restricted to: telemedicine; telerehabilitation; remote consulting services; remote monitoring; telehomecare technologies; development of mHealth and telehealth services.

Track 2: Public Health and Decision Support
This track covers informatics in public health, including surveillance, prevention, preparedness and health promotion. It also covers the area of decision support. Topics include, but are not restricted to: methods for detection and assessment of disease outbreaks and health problems; development of policies and plans; informing, educating and empowering people about health issues; evaluation of effectiveness, accessibility and quality of personal and population-based health services.

Track 3: Interoperability and Integration
This track covers the interoperability and integration aspects of the application of informatics and information technology to deliver healthcare services and in the discovery and management of new knowledge relating to health and disease. Topics include, but are not restricted to: data standards; standardisation; terminologies; data linkage; interoperability and integration of data across different healthcare areas, such as clinical care, clinical research, population health, imaging, diagnostics, translational science.

Track 4: Health Behaviour
This track covers the impact of technology on health behaviour. Topics include, but are not restricted to: serious games; health education; psychology; nutrition; exercise; long-term conditions; smoking cessation; computer-based interventions; social support; self-management.

Title: Simul8 – An aide to decision making

Abstract: An overview of why simulation modelling is a useful tool to aide decision making. The presentation will focus on how St Helens & Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust used Simul8 to model the required number of Stroke beds needed in order to achieve key targets and ensure better care of treatment for patients.

Track 3, invited talk 13:45 – 14:15


Topic: The role of terminology in integrated electronic health records

Abstract: While benefits can be achieved through implementing electronic records, these can be significantly enhanced when the national terminology is utilised for structured clinical content. All healthcare strategy documents from the Department of Health (since 2001) and those from the professional bodies include the use of SNOMED CT as that single national terminology. Some organisations have now been using the national terminologies for a number of years; the need for integration and interoperability is heightening awareness on a common approach for clinical content. This presentation will cover some of the challenges, the progress made and the benefits that can be gained.

Role: Implementation and Education Lead, UK Terminology Centre, Health and Social Care Information Centre

Title: Apps and digital products for mental health: what’s their role and how should they be evaluated?

Abstract: Advances in digital technology offer the potential to transform mental healthcare by improving access to services and providing more effective and flexible treatments. There are, however, unique risks associated with digital mental healthcare products that must also be considered. This talk will describe the development of a framework for the appraisal of digital mental health products being considered for use in the NHS, which was based on a 6 month collaborative project involving a wide range of service users, mental health practitioners, researchers, technology developers and clinical and information governance experts.

Title: NHS England Digital Maturity Programme

Abstract: The Digital Maturity Programme aims to establish a digital audit to determine a set of digital maturity indicators that provide a view as to where NHS organisations in England are in terms of digital capabilities such as electronic patient records and electronic prescribing, and will allow progress on digital capability / maturity to be tracked over time. The Digital Maturity indicators will cover Acute, Mental Health, Primary, Community, Ambulance and Social care settings, building on existing evidence about how investing and effectively using IT can achieve better patient outcomes, reduce bureaucracy, improve patient safety and deliver efficiencies; identifying and sharing best practices.

Role: Digital Maturity Programme Lead, Strategic Systems and Technology, Patients and Information – NHS England

Track 4, invited talk 11:15 – 11:45


Title: Evaluating serious games for health: Challenges and opportunities

Abstract: Pamela will share lessons learnt from conducting multinational Randomized Controlled Trials and prospective trials on games for health. The advantages and challenges in conducting scientific trials on innovative serious games will be discussed with particular attention to the role of randomized control trials in biomedical research. Pamela will also share her insights into the role of the researcher not only in evaluating but also in designing serious games for health. The specific examples of games she will discuss include Re-Mission, a 3D shooter game shown to increase compliance to antibiotics and oral chemotherapy among young patients with cancer; Plan+It Commander, a fantasy puzzle game designed to address functional outcomes associated with a diagnosis of ADHD in young children; Phosphorus Mission, a game designed to help older patients with chronic kidney disease understand the role of phosphorus in their diet and improve their adherence to phosphate binders, and Air Medic Sky 1, a game designed to address patient safety among young doctors in training. Audience members should leave with a greater appreciation and understanding of evaluating serious games for health.

Title: How patients are helping the NHS get better

Abstract: Patients and carers have always shared their experiences of healthcare with one another. But the advent of the web, and more so the rise of social media, means we can now share our stories more easily, safely, and widely than ever before. And, with Patient Opinion, we can now direct stories to just the right staff in the health/social care system. The result is both hundreds of small improvements in care, and a gradual shift in the culture of care itself.

Title: The West Midlands AHSN and its role in supporting digital health

Abstract: Digital health innovations are being developed locally and many are in use within individual local hospital trusts, general practice, and universities, as well as in many industries. This presentation aims to describe how the WMAHSN will bring these together, test out the best of these innovations, and by using exemplars test the effectiveness of region-wide consensus before promoting and practically encouraging region wide adoption.

Title: The Essentials of mHealth Success

Abstract: There are very high expectations of the potential for mHealth to make an impact across the healthcare landscape, but many efforts fail to deliver long-term scale deployment. Through his work as an independent consultant and former head of mHealth at Vodafone, Tony Kane has a deep insight into the drivers of mHealth success and failure, and will present a high-level view of those insights and case studies from his global experience.

Role: Managing Partner, Tony Kane Consulting
