Medical Apps: Mainstreaming Innovation
April 19, 2018 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Royal Society of Medicine
Royal Society of Medicine London W1G 0AE
The purpose of this meeting is to educate forward-thinking clinicians about the benefits of using medical apps to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs. In view of the expectation that the NHS will have a primary care app tariff in place by next April the ITP), this event will focus on mainstreaming the use of apps within the health & care services.
About this event
The programme features heavyweight speakers that will cover all aspects of mainstreaming medical apps. We will have Alexia Tonnel a Director of NICE, and her opposite numbers from the MHRA to talk about endorsement and regulation, supported by eminent lawyer Julian Hitchcock and senior academic Prof Jeremy Wyatt. Hazel Jones, Operations Manager for NHS Digital, will describe the app assessment questionnaire they have developed; a panel of three assessment organisations will describe the process in practice. Dr Richard Brady will give another of his excellent, amusingly presented talks on bad apps. Justin Walters will cover the ways apps can be used to change behaviour. We have two exemplars of app devel-opers to describe their craft including a medically-cleared diagnostic app for professionals and a talk on using them to manage depression.
