Health Innovation Conference
FIT FOR THE FUTURE
Undeniably, 2020 has been the most challenging year in NHS history. The COVID-19 outbreak was described by the health service as a “springboard” for transformation at an incredible scale and pace. The NHS recognises it must build on this momentum and continue to transform with a focus on equality and inclusion.
At the same time, the UK is also on a mission to harness the power of innovation to help meet the needs of an ageing society. The goal is clear: ensure that people can enjoy at least five extra healthy, independent years of life by 2035, while narrowing the gap between the experience of the richest and poorest.
Insider’s Health Innovation Conference will set out the North’s response and the actions that public and private organisations need to take now in order to relieve pressure off the NHS and empower citizens to take control of their health.
The conference will feature informative and insightful presentations from important figures in health across the Northern Powerhouse. It will home in how the North can work collectively to improve access to services, innovate and “do digital differently”.
Speakers will include those who are harnessing the region’s strengths in data, AI, life sciences, genomics, fintech, agetech and healthtech to drive new capabilities, industries, boost jobs and accelerate economic recovery. We will also hear how the power of place can be used to empower people to lead healthier lives—by improving access to healthcare, joining up the dots and closing the North/South divide when it comes to health inequality.
Join the conference for inspiration and to better understand the opportunities in the UK and overseas for business growth and innovation. Delegates will receive actionable, practical advice for taking the next steps in their growth journey.
The conference will explore three main themes:
- Doing Digital Differently: Needs-based innovation: How businesses are challenging the status quo in how healthcare is designed and delivered.
- The Power of Place: Clusters and community: from funding and mentoring to healthcare-led regeneration.
- Understanding Future Opportunities: The direction of travel: advances in personalised medicine and international opportunities.
