Lord Carter’s report published in 2015 highlights key areas where NHS trusts can make efficiency and productivity gains, using technology and innovation to best effect in the process, potentially saving up to £5bn. The findings and recommendations from the report are as relevant in theatres as any other department.
Eastern AHSN is hosting an event on 7 December 2017 which brings together NHS personnel from the operating theatre and associate departments with industry to see what opportunities there are locally to accelerate theatre innovation. As well as exploring new opportunities for partnership working, we will also be showcasing fantastic innovations already in development or recently brought to market.
Innovation themes on the day will include:
- Patient journey and experience
- Staff management and development
- Innovation in the integrated theatre to create efficiency
- Reducing risk through the use of technology
There will be also be an opportunity on the day to consider how you could practically adopt innovations locally, supported by the Eastern AHSN Transformation support unit.
Places are limited so we would encourage you to book early and please do contact us if you have any questions.
