Working in tandem: Joining health and social care

17th February 2015

Graphnet is bringing together leading practitioners and policy makers in the field of health and social care at a conference at the King’s Fund, London, in April (see below for further details and registration).

Although the spotlight nationally continues to fall on joining health and social care teams, examples of integration are still fragmented.  

Delegates at the free one-day event will hear a series of case studies presented by clinicians, practitioners and IT directors, who will give an insight into real experience sharing data across health and social care settings.  

In addition, the national policy picture from both a social care and health perspective will be presented by speakers Beverley Bryant, director of strategic systems and technology at NHS England, and Richard Humphries, assistant director policy at the King’s Fund.    

The event is designed to provide practical examples of how to implement shared care records, the benefits and potential pitfalls.  It is co-hosted by Graphnet’s partners System C, developer of the Medway electronic patient record software for the NHS, and Liquidlogic, the UK’s leading supplier of adult and children’s social care software.
