The Digital Health Section provides an educational perspective on the role of digital technology in creating patient-centric health and care services. Its focus is to educate its members and other people who come to its events on the progress being made on the adoption of digital innovation into mainstream services. It also shines a light on recent advances in the area and their implications on clinical, regulatory and ethical frameworks and guidelines. It also tries to highlight digital innovation from the patient’s point of view, so that clinicians and innovators better understand the consequences of advances in this domain.

Following the success of the Digital Health Section's first webinar series, The power of patient generated data, we invite you to take part in, Releasing time to care, digitally. From Thursday 3 September 2020, the six-episode series will be broadcast on Thursday evenings at 6:00pm. See upcoming webinars and book your place below.
At a time where the health and care workforce is increasingly time-pressured, this series will feature a range of technologies that can release time for healthcare professionals by helping them to be more efficient and effective, reducing their administrative burden and giving them more time to focus on the provision of care to their patients.
