Health Foundry Summit Banner 2017.jpg

Health Foundry's invite only 2nd annual Health Summit will bring together 70+ thought leaders, local stakeholders and digital health start-ups to debate the opportunities and challenges of technology in helping people with multiple long-term conditions.

Chronic diseases are now the most common cause of death and disability in England. More than 15 million people have a long-term condition such as hypertension, depression, asthma, diabetes, coronary heart disease, chronic kidney disease, or other health problems, for which there is no cure. This group tend to be heavy users of the health service, accounting for at least 70 percent of all NHS spend.


The Summit will focus on five main areas: Setting the Scene, Prevention, Early Intervention, Care & Treatment, and Self-Management.

Setting the Scene

Long-term conditions are one of the main drivers of cost and activity in the NHS and now account for about 50% of all GP appointments, 64% of all outpatient appointments and over 70% of inpatient bed days. The number of people with three or more long-term conditions is predicted to be 2.9 million by 2018. The inaugural session will set the scene both nationally and locally as well as looking at how best to use patient data safely in managing long-term conditions.

Prevention

Prevention of long-term conditions is more cost effective than treating the illness as it occurs. The Department of Health estimates that 70 per cent of the NHS budget is spent on long-term conditions, yet it is estimated that only four per cent of the total healthcare budget is spent on prevention. This session will examine the role of technology in preventing people developing one or more long-term conditions from a public health perspective, as well as looking at the role of digital social prescribing and how digital can help people get active.

Early Intervention

Research shows that identifying a significantly ‘at risk’ individual just one year earlier than at present can radically reduce their chances of developing future ill health. If clinicians had more information about those at risk of developing long-term conditions,  they could proactively detect, prevent and treat those at risk. This session will showcase companies and initiatives that are using technology to do just that.

Care & Treatment

Once a person has developed one or more long-term conditions, they are at the mercy of the health and social care systems. Care can be fragmented and reactive leading to frustrated patients and unplanned hospital admissions at a great cost of the NHS. The first afternoon session will investigate tech-driven integrated care initatives that are improving patients' quality of life and reducing costs.

Self-Management

A growing body of evidence emphasises the importance of effective self-management of long-term conditions. People who recognise that they have a key role in self-managing their condition (and have the skills and confidence to do so) experience better health outcomes. The closing session of the day will look at technologies that are helping patients take control of their condition.
