LumiraDx, Mindwave Ventures and System C & Graphnet Care Alliance are collaborating to back a major event in Bristol this week, bringing together NHS and local authority professionals, academics and technology companies. The goal of the event is to explore collaboration opportunities and shape the digital future of our health service.
The ‘Digital Art of the Possible’ event will take place at Ashton Gate Stadium on Wednesday 4 October and is being organised by the West of England Academic Health Science Network (AHSN).
‘Digital Art of the Possible’ will showcase digital innovations aligned to the needs of our regional health and care community, alongside a series of interactive workshops, demonstrations and group discussions, exploring the best way to evaluate digital healthcare technologies and accelerate their successful adoption into practice.
LumiraDx has been announced as a Gold Sponsor of the event. LumiraDx is a global health technology company delivering safer, more effective and cost-efficient, diagnostic-led care.
Their unique integration of point-of-care diagnostic data, smart technology platform and supported self-care programmes delivers dynamic, digital solutions that meet the demanding healthcare requirements of today.
Janina Cross, Chief Digital Information Officer at the West of England AHSN, explains the rationale behind the event:
“The digital revolution is fully upon us, bringing with it an exciting array of opportunities to support the future health and wellbeing of the population….However, the digital innovations we are adopting in our personal lives often far outpace those offered in health and care settings. This has to change! Moving to a digital future is sometimes easier to say than to do, and working out the best way to make the most of the myriad of digital opportunities available isn’t always straightforward….
…At the West of England Academic Health Science Network, innovation is at the heart of our mission to deliver a modern, constantly improving healthcare system for the region. We are the connectors across organisations and sectors, harnessing the enthusiasm and passion of frontline health staff and unlocking the potential for health, commercial and third sector innovators to improve services, patient outcomes and save money….
…Our ‘Digital Art of the Possible’ event draws on our experiences and learnings to date and it will provide an exciting launch pad for future collaborations.”
