EPR Summit 2024: Achieving the National Mandate

The EPR Summit is the first of its kind within the digital health sector. An opportunity for decision makers to come together and share experiences and plans ahead of all Trusts having EPRs in place by 2026. The event will bring together high-quality speakers and sector-leading experts with opportunities to meet a select number of EPR/EHR related suppliers from the UK and beyond. It will also include interactive Q&As to inform the debate. The summit will end with a networking dinner where colleagues can continue the conversation in a relaxed atmosphere.

Taking place in the Queens Hotel in the centre of Leeds – a thriving digital ecosystem and home to NHS England and notably forward-thinking Trusts and suppliers, this exclusive and intimate event will shape the EPR narrative for years to come. Through panel discussions, delegates will have the opportunity to hear from Trusts who are at varying levels of digital maturity – from those still using paper records through to those with fully embedded EPR solutions and all in-between. We have curated an agenda filled with speakers from across the country in order to ensure as many regions are represented.

Topics of conversation and presentation to include:

  • National and local strategies
  • The challenges of EPR procurement, finance, implementation and spread
  • The role of convergence in EPR success
  • Interoperability – fact or fiction
  • The importance of data standards in successful EPR embedment
  • What role does the national infrastructure play
  • User centred design – which use cases (and why) are most important when starting out
  • Data migration – how, what, who
  • Benefits and efficiencies

As the sun sets on a day filled with insightful discussions, informative presentations, and invaluable networking opportunities, we invite you to join us for the grand finale of the EPR Summit 2024: Achieving the National Mandate.

The evening meal that follows the drinks reception promises to be a delightful continuation of the day's discourse. This is your chance to unwind and engage with your peers and colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere, all while savouring a delicious feast.

The evening affair is all about unwinding and engaging with your peers and colleagues in a laid-back atmosphere over drinks and food, no presentations or pitches.

Convenzis Healthcare Event testimonials

What our clients say about us

It was great to join the Convenzis team again for the patient flow event. As always, the team were incredibly accommodating and happy to help. The quality of attendees is always of a high standard and relevant to the patient flow and to us also. We continue to have great discussions and footfall around our stand with no need to try and encourage people to come and see us. Really positive event for us and we look forward to working with Convenzis in the future.

Catalyst BI -

My colleague and I presented at the NHS workforce conference 2023, 19 September. The support and guidance we received from the Convenzis team in the run up to our presentation slot was great, well timed and perfectly pitched. The event itself, again was expertly organised. The conference was well Chaired by Sean, who was very engaging. As an audience member as well as a panel member, I would definitely work with the Convenzis team again.

I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!
