We at Tech in Care recently hosted a webinar on how technology can support people stay well at home with a panel discussion to explore many of the issues that are close to health and social care colleagues, but that we do not get time to regularly discuss with our peers, let alone a supplier.  

We had a dynamic panel of experts that span health, social care, transformation, strategy and technical development. They were:

- Lee Fermandel  - Head of Adult Social Care, Walsall Council;

- Amanda Powell – ICT & Business Transformation Lead, Wakefield Council

- Lorenzo Gordon– Director, Maldaba Ltd;

- Huw Jones – Former NHS Director of Commissioning.

The panel deep dove into topics around pressures across health and social care, flow and efficiency, interoperability, innovation and keeping our communities safe and independent at home. Some of the themes that shone brightly included:

- ‘Winter’ pressures have turned into year-round pressures.

- Teams across health and social care need a digital single version of the truth

- Suppliers need to do more to support implementation in systems that are already stretched for resources

- There is no single system to do everything – the key is interoperability.

- Interoperability cannot be a blocker for procurement – even if a new digital system cannot integrate with all your systems, if it is good, it is better than whatever process you are using now. Give suppliers a chance to work with you to build interoperability post commissioning.

- Don’t stop believing! Don’t stop innovating!

To hear the discussion in more detail we’re happy to share a link to the recording and outputs to event, please get in touch if you’d like to know more.

If you have any subject matter ideas for future webinars, please do share them with us. We very much like to work in collaboration with you and your opinions matter to us.

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.

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.


Covenzis delivered an excellent meeting like always - a hubbub of activity focused on future developments within NHS pathology laboratories

Working with Convenzis is a stress-free and a rewarding experience, with fantastic engagement from a highly targeted and relevant audience


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!
