With a clinical background he is committed to improving direct patient care through the effective use of technology and considers the current era of data explosion and advancing analytics to be one of the most exciting times to achieve that.
The lecture will consider the role that technical systems play in improving patient care and performance of the organisations involved.
We will look at technology platforms and complex data flows that are the foundations of intelligent patient information.
Lastly we will look at the journey that Healthcare systems have taken to current date and how that is reflected on the ground at Royal Berkshire as well as considering what the immediate and longer-term future may look like.
