Breakfast and registration will start from 8.45am.
Code4Health was launched by NHS England to create an eco-system of communities developing, delivering and supporting a wide range of high quality digital services to the care community. It will provide a platform for clinicians to come together with IT suppliers to identify and experiment with the systems in their Trusts and develop new functionality and products/solutions that they can potentially deploy. It aims to proffer a transformational approach through the adoption of innovative practice and shared ways of working with the goal of developing and creating a more intelligent customer of the NHS.
The programme has evolved over the last few months; most recently its plans have been redefined and objective broadened and it will now feed into NHS England's Open Source Programme. It will however, be supporting both open and closed source initiatives.
At techUK's briefing session, the Code4Health team at NHS England, led by Richard Jefferson (Head of Business Systems), will share their vision on how they intend for Code4Health to be a resource used by healthcare professionals and providers of services to deliver better patient outcomes. NHS England will provide details on the opportunities for IT suppliers to get involved in the programme and will be looking to industry for feedback on plans and/or commitment to the programme.
