Socitm announces nine regional workshops to disseminate learning on ICT implications of health & social care reform

Socitm is to deliver nine one day workshops across the UK this Autumn to disseminate learning about the information and technology implications of health and social care reforms that will come into effect from April next year.

The workshops will present learning from England’s fourteen Health and Social Care Pioneers and from elsewhere in the UK, ahead of the requirement for all authorities with social care responsibilities to implement reporting requirements (April 2015) and integration of health and social care (April 2016).

The regional events will follow two heath and social care summits in Leeds (25 September) and London (8 October), designed to raise awareness and understanding, engagement and ownership of the ICT challenges around implementation of health and social care reform.

The regional workshops will pick up key issues from the summits and consider how these can be addressed more locally.

Each event can accommodate up to 60 people. The audience is expected to comprise: CIOs/Heads of ICT, information management and other professionals from social care commissioning and delivery organisations, and specialists in care information systems, transformation and business process design.

Events run from 24 October to 9 December in Birmingham, Blackpool, Cambridge, Durham, Exeter, Guildford, Leeds, London and Loughborough.
