Our speaker. Professor Jeremy Wyatt, Leadership Chair in eHealth Research Clinical Adviser on new technology, Royal College of Physicians, addressed the question of how technology will shape care delivery and design in future.

Jeremy outlined the trends in terms of the potential to provide kit to monitor, remind and measure our health so that we can enable more active homes; the potential to provide care in community health hubs to better manage long term conditions; and the impact on hospitals that could make some hospitals more specialist, with some services less centralised in hospital. Whilst we might imagine being able to virtually transfer data to improve the support at discharge, we didn’t really want to contemplate the development remote operations – any more than flying airplanes without pilots! Not so much the art of the possible …more recognising the need for face to face contact for credibility, reassurance and care.
