OBH @ Health+Care 2016

The OBH team could be found at the Health+Care 2016 conference at London’s ExCel Centre. In addition to running a stand with our partner Capsticks, Rupert spoke on stage in a session chaired by Dr Foster, about how CCGs are beginning to use value-based metrics.

Watch Rupert talk here about the importance of measuring metrics and creating meaningful local measures, relevant to high quality healthcare performance.

Digital Health innovation | The role of data

The Digital Health Innovation event was hosted by law firm Osborne Clark, and Rupert joined a panel of guests with a range of interests including machine learning, engineering and digital health law. We were particularly excited to hear from Dr Adam Hill, Chief Medical Officer at McLaren Applied Technologies – who explained how the sensors of a Fomula 1 car, real time data analytics, predictive analytics and its software platform are relevant to healthcare.

“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”

OBH CEO Dr Rupert Dunbar-Rees chaired a discussion at the Royal Society of Medicine event – ‘Effective Patient Centred Integrated Care for Children, Young People and their Families’. The day was aimed at helping individuals involved in paediatric healthcare to understand how ‘children and families themselves, workforce development and the introduction of new models of care can be utilised to improve quality of care and health outcomes.’

Rupert’s session in particular focused on how best to use Patient-Centred Outcome Measures (PCOMS) to improve care in acute paediatric services and in caring for those with a complex disability. You can catch up on people’s thoughts during the event by using the twitter hashtag #ChildPatientCare
