    When:         Wednesday 13 February 2019.

    Where:        Prince Philip House, 3 Carlton House Terrace, St James, London, SW1Y 5DG 

    Digital modernisation and the warmth of human interaction are both essential for health services to thrive. What changes are we already seeing, what does the future hold, and how will the workforce have to adapt?    

    Med Tech, from wearables and implantables to telemedicine, virtual reality, AI and beyond, together with the use of Big and Smart Data and block chain have the potential to revolutionise healthcare over the next 30 years.       

    In some areas, digital innovations are already having a disruptive impact but how have these technologies affected the workforce, and what can be expected in the near future? How are roles likely to change? How will a future workforce work alongside automated processes, using advanced digital tools? What can be done to improve training and plug skills gaps? How can organisations use digital interventions alongside their workforce to improve processes and minimize challenges of staff shortage and retention?     

    We will be joined by Mark Britnell, our keynote speaker, and a panel of experts to discuss the issues.     

    Mark Britnell is the Global Chairman & Senior Partner for Healthcare, Government & Infrastructure at KPMG International and author of In Search of the Perfect Health System (2015).     

    Mark is one of the foremost global experts on healthcare systems. He spent 20 years in the NHS and has led healthcare organisations at local, regional, national and global levels – provider and payer, public and private. In his next book, Human: Solving the global workforce crisis in healthcare, Mark calls for a reframing of the global debate about health and national wealth, and invites us to deal with this problem in new and adaptive ways that drive economic and human prosperity. Harnessing technology, it asks us to reimagine new models of care and levels of workforce agility.     

    The session will be chaired by Jodie Sinclair, Partner, Bevan Brittan LLP
