SIHI 2014: Informatics to deliver integrated care

The conference theme for SIHI 2014 on 10 September is Informatics to deliver integrated care.

Health and social care services are aspiring to deliver truly integrated care. Information is what makes that possible. The programme will explore the information lifecycle from population needs analysis, through commissioning and service design to operational delivery and evaluation. What is working really well? Where are there gaps in information flow? How can we learn from exemplar projects and services?

We will have national and regional keynote speakers and a range of invited and submitted presentations. In addition, the “Infomart”, an informal information marketplace area, will allow vendors and researchers to set out a stall to meet people and exchange information. SIHI each year brings together practitioners, vendors and academics from across the range of health informatics domains to participate in learning and discussion on the latest progress and issues that face us.
