Live from Bath Digital Festival 2019 - Digital Health

  • 44:07

The team break free from our Manchester studio and head down south to the glorious Bath Digital Festival to record two special live episodes.

First up, we’re talking Digital Healthcare.

Digital and technology provides so many opportunities to improve systems, process and experiences for good. Is this really the case for the health sector? What are the opportunities for the health sector? Can current innovation do more harm than good? Can we build for prevention rather than reacting? How can digital solutions reach and benefit those who are digitally illiterate or less aware of their health?

All these questions and more are discussed by the panel.

Joining host Rebecca Rae-Evans are:

Andy Morley - New Level Health 

Andy is a pretty impressive tech specialist and local advocate for using digital for health as a preventative measure rather than reactive. He’s been working with a lot of local organisations to try and encourage more collaborative working. 

Paul Targett – RIVIAM Digital Care

RIVIAM builds platforms for health and social care providers so, can provide a great example of using technology for health. In this area RIVIAM supports child immunisations managing digital consents from parents and is supporting Virgin Care Adult services. Also provide digital referral and consent services for mental health and child physical health services.

Margaret Davidson - Mayden Academy 

Margaret heads up business development and marketing for Mayden Academy, helping to create a pipeline of diverse talent into tech. Mayden Academy teaches people how to code, preparing them for new careers as software developers in just 16 weeks.
