ADASS Care Apps Showcase reveals digital innovations and promises a ‘very different delegate experience’!


Posted on 2 February 2017 (Permalink)

A cross between Dragon’s Den, an unconference and a speed dating session, the ADASS Care Apps Showcase event on 7 March in Birmingham is designed to be hyper-productive, a unique chance to meet lots of people, hear about loads of new ideas, share your own ideas and go away fired up with opportunities.

Supported by WMAHSN as an event partner, the event will see selected app developers and innovators – more than 20 of them from local authorities, start-ups and established players - make short, elevator-pitch style presentations from the stage. They will cover the needs their innovation addresses and the benefits that will be delivered.

Presenter/table hosts include: 

  • Dr Mahiben Maruthappu, Senior Fellow to Simon Stevens, CEO of NHS England, co-founder of the NHS Innovation Accelerator and one of the founders of Cera, a new health and social care digital platform delivering on-demand care, talking about the Cera model of technology-enabled health and social care
  • Looking Local’s Jane Hancer, talking about co-development with Kirklees Council of Everybody Active and My Health Tools
  • Marcus Devaney of Lancashire County Council, together with Paul Davidson of iStanduk, on a new approach to place-based service directories using open data
  • Jenny Wood, Director of Adult Social Care and Support at ‎Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council, giving “a view from IEWM: what does digitally enabled care look like”
  • Kulbir Lalli, Head of Integrated Accommodation Commissioning at Hertfordshire County Council, talking about their new bed finding technology developed with OLM.
