Citadel Events, organisers of HEALTH + IN4MATICS – 2012 , is pleased to announce that the Royal College of Physicians will be supporting the aims of the conference and will be playing an active role during the event.
Plans are currently being progressed by the Co-Director of the Health Informatics Unit at RCP, Professor Iain Carpenter, to be involved in the run up to HEALTH + IN4MATICS 2012, and also at the event itself.
The RCP Health Informatics Unit views this as an excellent opportunity to communicate its medical records standards and other projects to delegates, suppliers, and wider HI related communities.
The RCP’s mission to drive improvements in health and healthcare has never been more important at a time when the NHS is facing on-going and significant challenges. The HEALTH + IN4MATICS 2012 event will provide a new opportunity for the College to promote its work in the areas of patient safety, clinical annotation and records standards.
Provisional plans include a platform presentation on the College’s general medical records standards, with Professor John Williams, director of the RCP’s Health Informatics Unit or Professor Iain Carpenter speaking or chairing a session. The College will also take a stand within the Supplier exhibition area where delegates and visitors will be able to talk direct to the team.
Suppliers or delegates wishing to meet with the College representatives on a one-to-one basis will be able to pre-book meetings prior to the event. This is a great opportunity for all parties to share their ideas, aspirations and plans.
Managing Director of Citadel Events, Stephen Bryant, said: “It is very pleasing to have the involvement of such an eminent body as the Royal College of Physicians at our event and to have their early endorsement of the conference aims and objectives. We are looking forward to developing our association for the longer term and would like to thank Professor Carpenter and his team for engaging with us.”

Headline speakers commit to HEALTH + IN4MATICS 2012, 9 months prior to the event
The HEALTH + IN4MATICS 2012 conference programme is being specifically designed to challenge the health informatics perspective within the constantly changing landscape of the NHS. The inaugural conference has the commitment of eminent and expert speakers drawn from diverse backgrounds: politics, the NHS, broadcasting, education, business and academia. Each will bring their own particular specialism to the debate that focuses on -“ DOING MORE WITH LESS”… DELIVERING WHOLE SYSTEMS CHANGE THROUGH COLLABORATIVE INNOVATION.
Joining the Rt Hon Stephen Dorrell MP,Chair of the Health Select Committee on the speaking podium as keynote speakers are:
- Dr Hilary Jones, TV Doctor and Broadcaster
Dr Hilary Jones began presenting educational medical TV programmes for British Medical TV in 1986. In 1989 he joined the most successful TV breakfast station ever, TVAM. He and Lorraine Kelly were the first presenters to be signed up by GMTV when it won the breakfast franchise in 1993 and he is now the Health Editor for breakfast television.
- Professor Aidan Halligan, Director of Education at University College London Hospitals
In 1999 Professor Halligan was invited to become the first Director of Clinical Governance for the UK National Health Service and formed the Leicester-based NHS Clinical Governance Support Team to translate the vision of clinical governance into a nationwide reality.
A growing list of confirmed speakers, along with their biographies, can be found by clicking on the speaker page. Each speaker will confirm their subject nearer the time.
The speaker list is being updated as more individuals, keen on shaping the future role of healthcare informatics, join the debate. However, speaking opportunities are still available at this stage and we welcome your interest.

With the advancing role of the retailer and the ever growing demand for personalised and customised healthcare provision, HEALTH + IN4MATICS 2012 will be exploring the current trend that sees healthcare slowly moving out of the hospital into primary care and out of the GP surgery on to the High Street. The Informatics challenge as ever is to ensure that clinical information, medical records, images and annotations follow the patient into any care environment whether this is an Intensive Care Unit or High Street store.
Real change must be made, health care must become more accessible, and those who provide it must accept that as consumers we have to be offered choice. Many supermarkets and pharmacies are open 24hrs a day, car parking is free and plentiful, access is easy and health care is readily available at a time and place that is convenient to the consumer rather than the provider.
The Information Governance issues when we begin to provide health care out of the traditional care settings are significant and must be addressed if we are to truly embrace this inevitable shift. However many of these issues have been addressed already and in some parts of the country health care is being provided in innovative and creative ways that offer real choice to patients, carers and members of the public.
With this current migration commercial retailers will need to explore different and more innovative ways of partnering with the NHS in order to provide care away from traditional settings, to reduce costs and enhance the patient experience.
The HEALTH + IN4MATICS 2012 event theme Doing more with less” – Delivering whole systems change through collaborative innovation is wholly relevant to the growing need to address the central concept of Healthcare in the High Street / surgeries in the supermarket and will demand whole system integration brought about through multi-agency collaboration.
HEALTH + IN4MATICS 2012 will provide the forum to debate this often controversial subject and the organisers will be announcing collaboration and involvement at the event from companies and agencies concerned with advancing the government’s plans in this area.

The organisers of HEALTH + IN4MATICS 2012, Citadel Events, announces exceptionally strong support for their new event from the supplier community.
Exhibition space reserved or sold already exceeds 840m2 and interest continues at a high level as the event takes shape. New initiatives for the Conference designed to bring the supplier and delegate communities close, are proving to be of exceptional interest to potential suppliers.
Commenting Dennis Wheatley, Sales Manager said: “Companies are demonstrating their desire to support Citadel Event’s new style of healthcare informatics event and enquiry levels for stand space are proof of this interest. Suppliers are particularly interested in the concept of being able to get closer to healthcare professionals attending conference. They have indicated their approval not just of the decision to invite NHS members to attend free*, but also the One to One meetings and the new speed meeting concept.
The fact that the event will take place over a two, rather than a three day period has met with universal approval for many reasons – not least the opportunity to take advantage of less expensive space costs, but also the reduction in time needed away from the workplace.
We also have a number of new sponsorship opportunities available that for our event that cross the boundaries between the conference and the exhibition, further demonstrating our objective of making this a truly integrated event”.

HEALTH + IN4MATICS 2012 will explore some of the current issues that affect the way we deliver health care, the environment in which we deliver it and how modern information systems available at the point of care will transform the patient experience. Real change must be made, health care must become more personalised, and those who provide it must accept that as consumers we have to be offered choice. We have to accept that patients will choose when and where they are treated and will insist on the presence of information, records and images to ensure that care is optimised.
