Digitisation of Healthcare: A conversation with Innopsis
The digitisation of the NHS (one of the biggest employers in the world) is a huge task, and it begins with the opening up of the organisation's underlying data network. Over the past year, the NHS's N3 network has been being migrated to a new network: Health and Social Care Network (HSCN). HSCN has been built by a number of co-operating suppliers, including Exponential-e.
Through HCSN and other projects, Exponential-e is looking to help the NHS increase its efficiency and flexibility, and ultimately to improve patient care. But is digitisation of the NHS leaving some of those patients - those with the greatest need of care - behind?
To discuss this and other issues surrounding digitising the health service, our Public Sector Director Afshin Attari sat down with Innopsis's Lynne Magennis for a fascinating discussion which you can listen to now on the Innopsis website.
Exponential-e will be attending the Public Sector Network Summit being held in London and Leeds in September. With around 200 technology and network professionals from across the Public Sector (including the NHS) attending, there will be presentations, discussions, case-studies and networking opportunities - all themed around the potential there is for the Public Sector to use networks and connectivity to its benefit, and the need there is to secure this technology against threats.
