Digital Transformations in Healthcare: Artefacts and Architectures

Thursday 11th May 2017, London

10.00 – 20.00

This workshop is the last event organised by ‘Delivering Digital Drugs’ project (2014-2017) funded by the Digital Economy Programme. It is an opportunity for the project team to present findings and achievements. However, the focus of the workshop will be forward-looking and the programme is very much future oriented: the future of healthcare, the future of digital healthcare infrastructures, and our future work and collaborations.

The workshop revolves around two linked ‘digital agendas’ for healthcare; issues of artefacts and of architectures. We consider a healthcare constituted in multiple, hybrid, and smart devices working and communicating across traditional institutional boundaries, and perhaps undermining them too. The implication this carries is for transformation towards new services and modes of service delivery as part of addressing contemporary drivers of change – big data and precision medicine (BDPM), patient-centred care (PCC), and meeting the triple-crisis of demographics/demand/cost (DDC).

Special guests for the day will be friends and colleagues from Norway. They will bring to the workshop their recent research experiences studying the introduction of homecare/remote patient monitoring, building infrastructures for personalized medicine, and several large, architecture-focused projects including the modernization of a Regional Health Enterprise’s system landscape covering ~4000 applications.
