40th Annual Conference 'Doing IT better'
Friday 8th October 2021 8:30 – 16:30
To quote William Gibson, “The future is here, it’s just not evenly distributed”. Building on this, the theme for this year’s conference is ‘Doing IT better’ focussing on how we use our knowledge and experience to make the future of IT and digital better. With sessions ranging from how we get evidence into practice, to interoperability and utilising big data, this day has something for everyone working in primary care health informatics.
This year we are honoured to host David Stables, CEO, Endeavour Health, reflecting on his life in Clinical Informatics. Come and join us and enjoy an IT packed programme with plenty of time for networking and socialising in delightful surroundings.
