Talking digital transformation of the NHS at ehi Live

The Ideal team at ehi Live 2017

The Ideal team had a productive time recently at Birmingham’s NEC at the ehi Live exhibition. Ehi Live is the UK’s largest digital health show focusing on healthcare innovation. One of main themes of this year’s exhibition was the digital transformation of the NHS and the Ideal representatives had plenty of opportunity to chat with delegates. Our team’s efforts were complimented by the social media hashtag #IdealChangeChat which enabled discussions between delegates and people who couldn’t attend the exhibition.

Ideal’s Delivery Director Jill De Bene commented: “We’re starting the discussion about how we build a better future for change in the NHS. At Ideal, our experience is that change is often overlooked, poorly discussed or completely left out when talking about the future of the NHS. We want to start the conversations that empower the NHS to undertake change differently and more successfully. We have to move our view of change forward if we want to see real IT transformation, or any transformation in health and social care.”

We would love to hear your views about change and digital transformation within the NHS. Join the conversation by tweeting us at @IdealUK or e-mail us at
