Tuesday 4 April 2017
Royal Society of Medicine
1 Wimpole Street
6 CPD Points
To discuss the regulation, the potential use and evaluation of the introduction of medical apps in a range of healthcare situations.
This event is the fifth annual medical apps event run by the Section; the previous four have all been popular. The purpose of each one has been to educate forward-thinking clinicians in the benefits of using medical apps to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs. In view of the expectation that the NHS will have an mHealth assessment operation running by next April, this event will focus on mainstreaming the use of apps within the health and care services.
The agenda features heavyweight speakers that will cover all aspects of mainstreaming medical apps. In particular we will have a representative from NICE and their opposite number from the MHRA to talk about endorsement and regulation, supported by eminent lawyer Julian Hitchcock and senior academic Professor Jeremy Wyatt.
Dr Richard Brady will give another of his excellent, amusingly presented talks on bad apps. Felix Naughton will cover the ways apps can be used to change behaviour, and Ian Gallifant explains how to build an app ecosystem on an EHR. To round the event off we have two exemplars of app developers to describe their craft including a medically-cleared diagnostic app for professionals.
The Telemedicine and eHealth Section will be live streaming the meeting until 12.30pm to the University of Bradford, Digital Catapult Centre Yorkshire. Please register for this as normal. There will be teas and coffees and networking after the streaming.
