techUK, the leading membership body for companies in the technology sector, has been announced as the latest partner to back Digital Health Rewired 2020, 3-4 March, 2020.
The partnership will see techUK join the programme group, contribute top-class speakers to the programme and share its expertise on how digital technologies are re-shaping health and social care.
Health and Social Care forms one of the largest industry groups at techUK, with over 100 members. techUK draws on this expertise to regularly advise on policy and runs extensive market engagement programmes on behalf of NHS Digital.
Jon Hoeksma, CEO of Digital Health, said: “Rewired is the new home of the whole digital health community. The show is about connecting current and future leaders together with the latest technologies and innovation. Realising the full benefits of digital health for all requires bringing together the talents and abilities of everyone in the sector.”
Ben Moody, associate director – health and public services at techUK, said; “We are delighted to be partnering with Digital Health on Rewired 2020 for this must-attend gathering of digital health leaders. techUK’s members provide the bulk of the technology that keeps our NHS running and will ensure it is fit for the future.
He added: “Since 2018 we have seen a new drive and new approach from DHSC and now NHSX to digitising health and care. Rewired 2020 offers the perfect opportunity for our members to come together with health policymakers and providers to assess and accelerate this agenda.”
The expanded Rewired 2020 show begins with the Digital Health leadership Summit, followed by the conference and exhibition on day two. Seven packed tracks of top speakers and inspirational leaders on digital health, will provide delegates with practical insights, knowledge and ideas they can take home and act on.
The fast-paced Rewired Pitchfest returns with 16 of the best start-ups in digital health competing live one stage.
New for 2020 is the Digital Health Data Lab, exploring latest developments in health data science and research; the Digital Health Developer Conference, for all software developers working in health and care.
