IT and Connectivity Network

The NPAG IT & Connectivity Network is about to start its third round of meetings this coming March!

IT systems reach out into all areas of healthcare and new mobile technology is bringing health IT into every aspect of our lives. Government / social pressures are causing a rush into data-sharing and connectivity without necessarily building the robust infrastructure, security, governance and supplier interfaces to  ensure safe, reliable provision. Recognising the need to support NHS professionals in these areas, NPAG launched its IT & Connectivity Network early in 2017.

This network brings together NHS Accute & Community IT professionals, Clinical Engineers, and Suppliers to understand and overcome some of the interoperability, security and connection issues. It allows shared learning and training across organisations, pulling together a sometimes-disparate community and gaining valuable insights from suppliers, government agencies and invited experts.

    The NPAG IT and Connectivity Best Value Group helps bridge some of the gaps between IT and Medical Engineering and identifies demands on both disciplines. This is supported with presentations from companies on solutions to it and medical device connectivity. Additional to this networking with a group comprising of the IT and Medical Engineering community from different organisations is really beneficial to all parties.
