OPENING KEYNOTE

Innovation in Healthcare

The Innovation Agency (Academic Health Science Network for the North West Coast) supports health and care organisations to adopt innovation and develop a culture that helps innovation to thrive. The Agency’s focus is on five key themes – supporting system transformation, driving the adoption of digital innovation, delivery of a Patient Safety Collaborative, supporting economic growth of industry partners and accelerating the spread of innovation across England. Liz will talk about the success of this approach and also about what lessons can be learned when things don’t go as planned.

RiTTa - The Assistant That Listens and Helps You

A general feeling across cancer patients is that they find it difficult to have good conversations about living with cancer when they want, where they want and at a time convenient to them.

Meeting this challenge for NHS Wales with over 220,000 patients registered with a diagnosis of cancer is an impossibility in the context of our current model of care. In order to resolve this issue, over 2 years we have used artificial intelligence to develop RiTTa (Realtime Information Technology Towards Activation) – the world’s first virtual assistant trained in Oncology. RiTTa has been trained to discuss and answer questions on a broad spectrum of areas and will incorporate new technology such as Tonal Analyser where she can respond to different emotional stations depending on how you are feeling. RiTTa can have conversations with a huge amount of people at the same time – 24/7, anyplace anywhere to support them taking back control of their lives.

Heads in the Cloud

This session will address why Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Trust opted for a cloud-first approach to deliver its unified workspace to its community service. Justin will outline the process the Trust undertook from business case development to delivery. He will also delve into the challenges, frustrations and opportunities of this approach, along with the reasoning behind the critical decisions, choices and constraints.

Key points:

  • The benefits for NHS Trusts of adopting a cloud-first strategy
  • The lessons learnt by Lewisham and Greenwich of transitioning to the cloud
  • Learn how to manage the complexity of a cloud migration project
  • Report back on early findings form the rollout

AI and Machine Learning - Pathology, Medical Fit for Discharge and Mobilising HR

Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust is in a somewhat unique position in that it builds its own Electronic Health Record. The ability to consider the application of Machine Learning algorithms hosted in cloud and delivering benefit directly into the EHR and therefore immediately on to the delivery of patient care are significant. Richard and Sarah will share the four keyway finder projects that LTHT will be delivering in 2019:

  • The ability for a machine learning algorithm to predict the Medically Fit For Discharge date directly into the EHR based on 15 years of history data as well as environmental open data
  • The ability to take environmental data around respiratory related impactful items being analysed via Machine Learning and provided into Leeds wide systems
  • The ability to use Machine Learning capability within the EHR to summarise clinical notes specific to clinician speciality
  • LTHT is the first hospital in the NHS to be 100% digital for pathology services, AI capability within this environment can be significant in augmenting the clinical workflow.

CLOSING KEYNOTE

Our Transformation Journey

The content of the presentation will be to outline the Strategic Vision for Cardiff and Vale University Health Board and to highlight the gap analysis of where we were in 2015 where we are now 2018 and where we want to be in 2025.

I will then cover our Learning Alliance established with the Canterbury District Health Board (New Zealand) an organisation that has largely delivered against a similar set of ambitions. During this part of the presentation I will highlight some of the things we have learned from the Canterbury Health System and how we are interpreting that for the Cardiff and Vale Health System.

Lastly I will comment on a couple of real platforms for transformation from the Canterbury Health Board and demonstrate their part in our journey, to include Healthcare Pathways, Information to the frontline and culture change.

Winedown Workshop - Information Driving Engagement

This workshop will demonstrate the power of real time information to clinicians to support decision making and service re-design through rapid improvement agendas. I will demonstrate “Signals from Noise” and give some live examples of how the system has helped us to improve our services. I will then expand this thinking to demonstrate how we are using “Signals from Noise” to join up our system to include Ambulance Acute Hospital and Social Care Services.

Lastly I will demonstrate our Regional Partnership Board1 Outcomes Framework.

1 Regional Partnership Board is our Health and Social Care Board which includes Local Authorities, Health providers and Third Sector providers.
