The Digital Healthcare Show hailed as a legacy event by delegates and exhibitors 
Inspiration, innovation and transformation dominated the discussion at the double award winning Digital Healthcare Show 27-28 June 2018 at London ExCeL. Over 10,000 healthcare professionals gathered under one roof across two education packed days to discuss and celebrate the latest developments in healthcare technology and drive digitally enabled care at scale together. 

400+ healthcare pioneers shared practical solutions within the world-class programme with our delegates to help improve patient outcomes in an ever developing sector to help strengthen frontline services across the UK through the use of intelligent data. Digital healthcare professionals gathered in the theatres to hear the latest updates from world-class speakers including: 

Simon Eccles, CCIO, NHS England; Will Smart CIO, NHS England; James Freed, CIO, Health Education England; Dominic Cushnan, Social & Digital Transformation, NHS Horizons; Tim Kelsey, Chief Executive, Australian Digital Health Agency; Andy Kinnear, CIO, South Central West Commissioning Support Unit; Juliet Bauer, Chief Digital Officer, NHS England; Richard Corbridge, CIO, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust ? Maureen Baker, CBE FRCGP, Chair, Professional Record Standards Body

“I thought this year’s Digital Healthcare Show was the best it’s been.  Relevant, interesting, a huge range of suppliers, absorbing conference sessions, top line speakers and visitors who are change makers and decision makers.
2019 will be even more important.  A new SoS, with a background in digital, AI and technologies, is sure to mean the long awaited NHS digital revolution will find traction.
Who knows how many new initiatives we can expect, changes in policy and ‘digital first’?
This is a show not to be missed… I hope to see you there”. Roy Lilley Health Policy Analyst, Writer, Broadcaster and Commentator on the NHS
The conference programme delivered strategies which addressed 4 key themes to help tackle crucial digital developments the sector is facing: digital innovation, infrastructure and data security, data analytics and population health, integration and interoperability.

An exhibition floor overflowing with innovation  
Our delegates flocked to the buzzing exhibition floor to witness a range of ground breaking technologies in healthcare. Delegates and exhibitors welcomed the chance to explore the networking opportunities before, during and after the show to access the latest products and services available from over 300+ world class suppliers including: Orion Health, Optum, EMIS, NHS Digital, Cerner and NHS England. 
“This event is a direct reflection of the inevitable and imminent change in the healthcare sector to embrace digital technologies. Digital transformation of healthcare is viewed by many as the single most critical factor in addressing the funding, staffing and capacity challenges facing the NHS at almost every level, and in almost every department the event shares case studies delivered by the people who are working at the coalface as well as innovation that can make a difference at scale.” Lee Davies, Show Manager. 
The Digital Healthcare Team would like to say a big thank you to all our digital healthcare delegates, speakers, exhibitors and sponsors for making this innovative event an unmissable two days in the digital healthcare calendar. 
The Digital Healthcare show returns 26-27 June 2019.
