Westminster Health Forum

Next steps for patient records, IT and data security in the NHS

Morning, Thursday, 13th September 2018

Central London


This seminar will bring out the latest thinking on patient records and information technology in the NHS.

With the Data Protection Bill currently going through Parliament, delegates will consider what more needs to be done by NHS organisations to ensure data security following the introduction of EU GDPR from May 2018, and in response to cyber security attacks.

There will also be discussion on progress of Local Digital Roadmaps in achieving the Government’s commitment to interoperable paperless care by 2020, as well as their alignment with Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships.

Further planned sessions assess challenges for improving digital inclusion in the NHS following recent publication of NHS England’s digital roadmap for the next two years, which sets plans to increase the uptake of digital patient services and roll out Citizen ID to make patient records easier to access, as well as the role of clinicians, Chief Information Officers and other NHS staff in supporting patients and driving innovation.
