The Executive Leadership Summit in October 2016 once again saw our high profile speakers lead discussions on the latest thinking in healthcare IT, including:

  • Keith McNeil, Chief Clinical Information Officer at NHS England, who explored the role of clinicians in healthcare IT transformation
  • Juliet Bauer, Director of Digital Experience at NHS England, who outlined plans to create a better digital experience for NHS patients
  • Paul Baverstock, Communications Lead for the digital transformation agenda, Department of Health, NHS England and NHS Digital on rewriting engagement in digital health transformation

 Attendees also had the opportunity to attend our expert-led and practical workshops, covering diverse topics such as:

  • Reality of integrated care, led by Richard Jefferson, SRO for NIB Integrated Care Domain & Enterprise Architecture Board Chair at NHS Digital and Inderjit Singh, Head of Enterprise Architecture, NHS England
  • Recipe for success, led by Laura Ellis-Phillips, Head of Informatics Programme Management, Ashford and St. Peter's Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
  • Meaningful capture and display of clinical content, led by Dominic Kirkman, International Manager of Pre-Sales Engineering, Lexmark

  • Office 365 customer immersion experience, led by Lee Francis, Director of Healthcare Strategy, Trustmarque 
“HIMSS events have an element of prestige associated with them. ELS is known for being a great place to share thoughts and best practice amongst likeminded CIOs. The networking and dinner element was really unique from a peer to peer perspective.”
Christine Walters, Director of Informatics, St Helen’s and Knowsley NHS Trust
