The theme for this meeting is ‘The Innovation Adoption Challenge’ exploring the barriers to uptake of new ways of working using digital tools and potential solutions and strategies to overcome these barriers.

Speakers from across the regional and national digital health community will be talking about a range of shared issues and experiences including building the digital ready workforce, digital literacy and community engagement, integration, evidence and evaluation, and innovative commissioning; with case studies of innovation successes for shared learning (and collaboration!)
