    21 January 2014 – NHS England workshop on technology & information

    NHS England in partnership with the Informatics Services Commissioning Group (ISCG) are holding a participation workshop on using technology and information in the health and social care system.

    The event is scheduled for 21 January 2014, to run between 10am & 1pm, at Resource for London, 356 Holloway Rd, London N7 6PA.

    Places at the event are limited. To register your interest email England.nhs.participation@nhs.net or phone 0113 825 0861.

    The Informatics Services Commissioning Group (ISCG) directs the commissioning of all information and technology services in health, healthcare and social care.

    The event will explore and influence the emerging informatics strategy that the ISCG is developing for health and social care in England. Key themes and messages from the morning workshops will be taken directly by workshop participants to health and social care leaders in the afternoon as part of the formal ISCG meeting.

    Alongside in-depth sessions on different elements of the ISCG’s work, there will be a market place with opportunities to get information and exchange views on a range of programmes relating to technology, information and participation, such as digital inclusion, virtual engagement and care data. This will be a virtual as well as a face to face event with webcasts, tweetchat and blogs.

    This event is for all those interested in understanding, influencing and helping design technology and information services for health and social care: patients, carers, voluntary and community sector, people from NHS and social care organisations, suppliers, professional bodies and policy organisations.
