NHS CLINICAL INFO-MART 13th January 2010 Bristol

The UK Faculty of Health Informatics is organising a NHS CLINICAL INFO-MART

This will be an opportunity to share innovations and experiences in the field of clinical informatics that make a difference to patient care

Tuesday 13th January
Waterside, Watershed, Bristol

http://www.watershed.co.uk/conference/

The UK Faculty of Health Informatics, in conjunction with Bristol Royal Infirmary’s Paediatric Intensive Care Unit and the University of the West of England, would like to invite you to participate in a new opportunity to share Best Practice in the clinical informatics arena in a NHS Clinical Info-Mart.

At our first Info-Mart we plan to cover 5 main areas of huge interest, potential and often frustration for NHS staff. These are:

1. E-prescribing in secondary care
2. Clinical incident reporting systems
3. The development and use of community based information systems spanning across mental health, long term conditions and social care
4. Clinical Audit databases that are intuitive and interoperable
5. Tools and approaches to improve the accuracy of Clinical Coding

Although other relevant topics are likely to be discussed.

The features of the proposed info-mart are distinct from existing conferences and trade exhibitions in that it is:

* Clinically focused – the issues that we are trying to share or find solutions and lessons learned are led from a clinical viewpoint rather than a technical or sales perspective
* Focused on real experience of what already works – too often NHS staff have felt frustrated by Suppliers promoting technical developments that haven’t actually yet been deployed. This info-mart is designed to share what has already been tried and tested in different parts of the NHS across the UK from a clinical/service perspective
* Free of charge – the event is funded by the UK Faculty of Health Informatics and your personal details used when registering will not be shared with any other suppliers i.e. no follow-up sales calls or invitations to demonstrations
* Provides access to established Communities of Practice – if you want to progress ideas or issues more you will be able to sign up for free membership of an on-line community based on the Department of Health’s Informatics Directorate’s eSpace platform to keep in touch with other people that you have met on the day.

Format and structure:

Although the info-mart will be open all day from 9.30am until 5pm, unless you are a presenter or exhibitor you only need to attend when you wish to or are free to.

Presentations on each of the 5 main themes will take place at the following times in a separate auditorium adjacent to the info-mart as follows:

10am until 11am E-prescribing – solutions that work within secondary care settings
11am until 12 noon Clinical incident reporting systems
12 noon until 1pm The development and use of community based information systems spanning across mental health, long term conditions and social care
2pm until 3pm Clinical Audit databases that are intuitive and interoperable
3pm until 4pm Tools and approaches to improve the accuracy of Clinical Coding

The event is designed for NHS staff working in Medical, Nursing, Pharmacy, AHP, Social Care, Informatics, Senior Management, Communications or Education and Training roles

The event has been organised by 5 members of the UK Faculty of Health Informatics.
