Winners and runners-up in eHealth Insider’s own awards are being given a feature area within the EHI Live exhibition for the first time this year.
Some of the entrants in the EHI Awards 2011 in association with BT will be appearing in the EHI Awards theatre, alongside winners and runners-up from previous years.
This will give visitors the chance to hear about ten top projects in UK healthcare IT; ranging from the roll out of a health informatics strategy for the management of haemophilia to how one trust cut its ‘did not attends’ – and saved money in the process.
EHealth Insider director Linda Davidson said: “The awards continue to go from strength to strength, so it is terrific that we are able to properly showcase some of the work of the entrants and winners this year.
“We know that EHI readers are interested in the work that is being done in NHS trusts and to explore the reality of running a major IT project in the health service with people who have ‘been there and done that’.
“The EHI Awards theatre will give visitors to EHI Live 2011 the opportunity to do both. With luck, it could even inspire people to be the EHI Awards winners of the future.”
The EHI Awards theatre is just one of the free features of the EHI Live 2011 exhibition, which is built around more than 100 stands from top healthcare IT suppliers.
Other features include the popular Best Practice Showcase, sponsored this year by Carefx, which brings case studies to the floor of the exhibition, presented by NHS IT experts and the suppliers working with them.
Meanwhile, GS1 UK will be bringing its Healthcare Village to the show, to demonstrate how GS1 UK standards can help to improve the efficiency and quality of healthcare in the UK, and IHE-UK will be showing how XDS and XDS-I can facilitate the exchange of patient information and images between geographically different domains.
And EHI and Malcolm Newbury, founder of Guildfoss Limited, an open source business development company, will be running an open source skunkworks, to show how open source software might play a role in UK healthcare IT.
If you have an open source challenge, pose it now and get an answer – or even a working demonstration – at the show.
EHI Live 2011 is taking place at the NEC in Birmingham from 7-8 November. Alongside the exhibition and its features, there is a paid-for conference, with top-name speakers including the current head of NHS IT, Katie Davis. Registration is open now.
