There is no doubt that COVID-19 has helped to accelerate digitalisation within the NHS. Technology has played a crucial role in enabling transformation to happen across all areas of the organisation, helping to ensure patient care and communication can be maintained despite the challenging conditions caused by the pandemic.
Prodec Networks was recently invited to sponsor and present at a virtual event hosted by Convenzis, a leading organiser of in-person and virtual conferences, summits and dinners, which brings together members of the NHS and healthcare community.
The event 'Scaling Up, Improving Care: The NHS Health Tech Virtual Conference' provided a timely platform to showcase the technology behind recent process improvements within the healthcare sector, with an aim to provide NHS leaders with insight into the changes that have been made and highlight the resources available to develop the sector further.
Jon Sugden, Head of Unified Communications at Prodec Networks was joined by Bob Beckwith, Infrastructure Manager at Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, to discuss the importance of secure, reliable and easy-to-use collaboration tools within modern trusts. A recording of this presentation can be viewed above or by clicking here.
In this short but informative presentation, Bob explains how Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust maximised its investment in these valuable tools and was able to ensure that successful remote working and care could be achieved.
Jon also announced details of Conflab Health, a bespoke video patient care solution for NHS trusts and GP practices that allows users to instantly manage bookings, share important health documents like medical records and prescriptions, and deliver thoughtful, virtual personal consultations to patients, wherever they may be.
