11:35 Empowering the NHS Professional: the digital opportunity and challenge
Care is no longer just delivered in hospitals and GP surgeries. It is moving out into the community and people's homes. Being able to access information and collaborate at the point of care, regardless of location, is vital. HSCN is a critical enabler, as is the ability to support mobile and fixed connectivity. Our survey last year indicated that 85% of respondents envisage increasing mobile adoption.

We will explore the connected care eco-system and what's needed to support care outside traditional settings. Using real-life examples, we will look at barriers to adoption and ways that these can be overcome.

Keiron Salt, CIO for Health, BT Enterprise - Major and Public Sector

14:00 A Secure NHS - How the NHS can make better use of technology in a secure way
Security in Healthcare continues to be a huge topic with growing concerns around data, virtual systems and cloud services.
