How can we harness the power of digital to look after our health and wellbeing, but on our own terms? Will smart gadgets help us live independently for longer in the future? Can fitness trackers help us take charge of our wellbeing, whilst also keeping our family and health professionals informed?
These are some of the question we have explored together at our Discover Digital events.
Our programme of exploratory events was aimed at people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Through a selection of stalls, talks, activities at each of our four showcase events, led by experts from local and national organisations, we hope we managed to shed a light on some of the solutions currently available to help us self manage better.
If this is a topic you are actively interested in, we have another opportunity to get involved: Scotland’s Digital Health and Care Fest 2019.
Scotland’s largest health and social care conference is scheduled for 20 – 21 November 2019 in Glasgow. The two-day conference explores the latest developments, issues and achievements in the health and care sector and we will have a dedicated Discover Digital session on the second day. If you are interested in finding out more or would like to book a place, you can either email Carmen, our Digital Health and Care Development Officer, at Carmen.PaputaDutu@alliance-scotland.org.uk or book directly at https://book.shsc.scot/dhcc2019 (this link will take you away from our website).
Discover Digital is Scotland’s first initiative focused on delivering immersive, multi-media events for people to experience digital health tech. The project is brought to you through an extensive partnership and the support of the Scottish Government (Technology Enabled Care division and Digital Health and Care division), Nesta, NHS 24, DHI and BCS Health and Care Scotland, as well as various collaborators.
