Digital Health Rewired, the premier education and networking event for the UK digital health community, has confirmed its first official partners for its 2023 edition.
Professional Record Standards Body (PRSB), The Federation for Informatics Professionals (FEDIP), techUK and CW+ have all confirmed their participation as partners in the conference which takes place 14-15 March 2023 at London’s Business Design Centre.
The partners will support the development of Rewired’s CPD accredited conference programme. In addition, they will bring their diverse member communities to convene at Rewired to enjoy the best of NHS IT, digital and data innovation under one roof. One thousand people have already registered their place.
The PRSB, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the development and implementation of standards in health and social care, will be exhibiting on stand D4. Marketing manager Andy Hall said:
“PRSB is delighted to be continuing its partnership with Digital Health Rewired by participating in the 2023 event in March. With digital integral to the delivery of a truly integrated health and social care system, Rewired is a critical platform for debate on how to achieve this effectively and efficiently.
“We are especially looking forward to contributing to discussion on how data and digital solutions can help address the challenges of the backlog, enhance the day-to-day life for the workforce, and improve the health and wellbeing of people through preventative care.”
FEDIP, a member organisation supporting the development of the informatics profession across health and care, returns as Rewired partner for the second year in a row.
Sarah Scriven, FEDIP’s operations committee chair, said: “Rewired offers the opportunity to reconnect in person and to celebrate and recognise the work of health and care informatics practitioners from across the profession. This year, we look forward to hearing from future leaders to give a voice to their experiences and ideas for the future.
“Throughout 2022 we have worked with Digital Health and the Federation’s Professional Bodies to help promote and support future digital leaders in the health and care informatics profession. We look forward to hearing from our 35 under 35 scholarship winners at this year’s Rewired on workforce development, tackling health inequalities and staff education.
“Rewired will also give our Professional Bodies a platform to discuss how the profession has made progress in these crucial areas and how practitioners can use this work to support their own professional development. We look forward to seeing everyone again in March.”
