Rupert speaks at the UK Health Show

An exciting few days for CEO Rupert at the UK Health Show on the ‘Commissioning for the Future’ stage!

Taking part in two panel discussions, he discussed the importance of collaboration with STPs to enable local health system transformation as well as the incentivising of prevention vs payment by results. Featuring a range of people from legal, clinical and more corporate backgrounds, both panels covered various themes including cancer, mental health and long-term conditions. There was also a specific focus on the challenges and opportunities of system integration and transformation.

With a notable emphasis on the role of technology in optimising healthcare delivery throughout the event, this year’s edition of the UK Health Show was the largest to date. This provided a fantastic opportunity for clinicians and healthcare professionals amongst others to help their organisations play a part in shaping the NHS into a sustainable healthcare system for years to come!

Rupert part of Matt Hancock’s HealthTech delegation at World Economic Forum, China

A productive, inspiring week for our CEO Rupert at the World Economic Forum in China, showcasing innovation and collaboration in Digital Health on an international scale!

With enlightening sessions on the Future of Healthcare and Machine Learning, as well as discussion with Secretary of State Matt Hancock, the event firmly reinforced the power of some of the UK’s leading HealthTech SMEs in the use of technology to improve prevention and empowerment.

A fantastic step in ensuring better health outcomes and sustainable costs of care, emphasising the importance of prevention and ensuring people never become ‘patients’ in the first place. Through systematic measurement, understanding and improvement of Healthy Lifespan and HealthSpan, sustainable life costs of care can become a reality and allow health systems to reduce the lifetime burden of ill health.

Great news for OBH and the sustainability of our healthcare system for generations to come!
