Excellent feedback was provided by delegates attending the ‘Using Technology to Improve Collaboration across Healthcare’ event held at the prestigious Manchester Central Library on the 22nd October. This event followed similar events held in Leeds and London over the summer months.

Speakers from the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), London Borough of Redbridge/ADASS (Association of Directors of Adult Social Services) and The Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust (one of the largest acute trusts in the UK) provided a valuable insight into their secure and compliant data sharing initiatives to delegates from a wide range of healthcare organisations including councils, acute trusts, charitable organisations and NHS England.

Stephen Rapicano, managing director of IGspectrum, presented a number of case studies at the event which demonstrate IGspectrum’s ability to work closely with their customers to deliver clinical benefits, patient safety, efficiencies and innovation via secure and compliant web-based services.

IGspectrum has been awarded a contract by Whipps Cross Hospital Barts Health NHS Trust to deploy IGspectrum’s Admission and Discharge service. In this case the deployment is specific to the management of vulnerable adults.

The service, which manages and distributes Section 2 and 5 forms, went live in December 2013 and is now being used by all nursing staff in twenty two wards across the hospital.

Following the success for our July events in London and Leeds this year, we have decided to add another two dates for the next morning briefing sessions with speakers from ADASS Information Management Group/Department of Health and the Information Commissioner's Office.

These will be Tuesday, 7th October 2014 in Manchester or Tuesday, 14th October 2014 in Bristol.

The topics include Health and Social Care integration, Information Sharing and Information Governance.

IGspectrum announces a programme of events to provide organisations with:

  • valuable briefings on a number of current topics from independent speakers
  • case studies demonstrating how IGspectrum’s services and technology can support your data sharing, collaboration and paperless objectives.

The topics include Health and Social Care integration, Information Sharing and Information Governance. The first two events will be held in London on the 1st July and in Leeds on the 8th July.

IGspectrum announces the sponsorship of the IG Forum meeting on the 15th May 2014 at the YMCA, 41 Fitzroy Square, London W1T 6AQ.
