EMIS Health at #iLINKS16

08 Jul 2016

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been up and down the country at a variety of events – including The Commissioning Show in London and the NHS Confed Annual Conference in Manchester to name but a few.

This week we were a main sponsor for #iLINKS16, the iLINKS Innovations 2016 Conference. Hosted at Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool and organised by NHS Informatics Merseyside, the annual conference showcased the work that’s happening across Merseyside to provide better, faster and cheaper healthcare, much of which is supported by our technology.

Lots of sessions were held throughout the day, of which we hosted three, including:

  • EMIS Group’s chief medical officer, Dr Shaun O’Hanlon, covered system usability and what we’re doing to make our software more user-friendly
  • our deputy managing director for primary, community and commissioning, Martin Bell, explained how we can help join up urgent and emergency care
  • and Matt Murphy, our managing director for primary, community and commissioning, along with Matt Sweeney, head of our partnerships and alliances team, Chris Shepherd, head of our primary, community and commissioning product management team and Tim Hill our integration and interoperability product manager, shared how healthcare organisations can innovate with our technology - covering remote consultations, diabetes care and medical records access.

The keynote sessions and panel discussion also covered lots of innovative ways NHS Informatics Merseyside are transforming care for patients across the region and what’s going to happen in the next year.
