The Digital Catapult aims to support the UK in becoming a global leader in Personal Data and Trust, and through this 3-day Pit Stop we will explore ways of encouraging responsible innovation with personal data, within the context of social and health care.
One of the greatest inhibitors to the better integration of Health and Social Care lies in the sharing of data. Furthermore, utilisation of this shared data holds enormous potential to unlock insights into users (patients) that could dramatically impact on quality and longevity of life. Additionally, utilising this information in the provision of service could also substantially reduce the costs of this delivery.
This event will seek to more clearly define some of these issues and opportunities, and make concrete progress towards obtaining some of these benefits. We anticipate that this will catalyse a community of problem owners and solution developers that will start making health and social care integration a reality.
These exclusive and free-to-attend events are not conferences, courses, or incubators. They are designed to give you unique insights to the challenges faced by key decision makers in the sector. You will be able to contribute to the design of solutions that may become widely adopted as well as building core relationships and networks.
Please register to attend this event if you would like to:
- Refresh your approach to creating breakthrough products and services relating to social care
- Obtain exclusive access to partners, new markets and funding opportunities
- Participate in collaborative workshops with top technical architects and experts
- Be inspired and informed by leading edge research, innovation and ideas
This event will bring together:
- Local authorities
- Clinical Commissioning Groups
- Academic institutions and researchers
- Data innovators and entrepreneurs
- Social and Health care providers
The Pit Stop provides an opportunity for innovators to network with potential customers and collaborators, get to grips with customer needs, and contribute their expertise to solve data challenges faced by the social care sector.
If you have skills and competencies that will address the aforementioned challenges, please book your place. We believe these skills will include (but not exclusively): data integration, data mining and data visualisation; algorithm-driven application development; telehealth, telecare and prevention; connected homes, sensors and the Internet of Things; communication and service management platforms; and digital inclusion.
The Digital Catapult is one of a network of Catapult centres with initial funding from the Innovate UK specifically to unlock challenges in data innovation and accelerate businesses to market, and the events at the Pit Stop are one of the main platforms we have for delivering that mission.
