We're very lucky to have a double-header later this month with two talks from people with a big picture view of digital health, its impact, and future roadmap. It's great to also be back hosting this seminar up the hill in Headington, in the Kennedy Room at Oxford Brookes.
Tracey Grainger, Head of Digital Primary Care Development at NHS England
Transforming the NHS through Technology - Sharing Experience in Digital Primary Care and Digital Child Health.

Dominic McKenny, Chief Information Officer at Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust
Dominic is the Chief Information Officer at Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust. During his initial career as a clinician Dominic became interested in the power of information and digital health as a key enabler to support healthcare delivery. He turned his hobby for computing into a formal career and in 2000 took charge of the Trust's informatics function. Since then Dominic has overseen the successful delivery of several major systems and solutions.
A key game changer for staff and patients in recent years has been the Trust's focus on mobile health initiatives. With one of the largest deployments of Apple's iPads in the NHS, the Trust is already delivering on one of the key initiatives outlined in the Government's 'Five Year Forward View (https://www.england.nhs.uk/ourwork/futurenhs/)' for NHS services (paper-free at the point of care). Dominic's talk will focus on the Trust's main digital health initiatives to date emphasising the benefits that have already been achieved and outlining the challenges faced going forward - challenges that will only be overcome working in partnership with other organisations and digital health enablers.
