31 October 2017 – 1 November 2017
The NEC, Birmingham, UK

ehi LIVE is the UK's number one show for all those involved in digital health, hospital information, cyber security and healthcare innovation.

The show takes place from the 31 October to 1 November 2017 at the NEC Birmingham, with more than 4,000 professionals dedicated to IT healthcare in attendance, coming together to discuss the frontline use of healthcare technology and just what products will shape the future of the healthcare industry.

Over 150 exhibitors will be also present to showcase leading solutions and products that are shaping the future of the healthcare industry.

WHY ATTEND EHI LIVE 2017?

ehi LIVE 2016 welcomed 4,000 attendees and saw a 15% increase in the number of NHS attendees compared with previous years as well as a 25% increase in private hospital attendance. The movement towards a paperless NHS has driven an increase in demand for technology to support healthcare, and this was clearly demonstrated in the discussions that took place at this year’s show.

If you work in health informatics or have a close interest in the use of information in health care, ehi LIVE 2017 is a must-go event for you. While IT professionals are at the heart of our audience, we also expect to see healthcare leaders, managers and clinicians involved in the specification, procurement, management and front line use of information systems.

ehi LIVE is also where CIO's, CCIO’s, CEO’s, Board Members meet and discuss how concepts such as Cloud, Wearables, Informatics, Big Data, Security and Social Media can improve patient care and create smarter hospitals. It is the go-to-event for people with real buying power in the UK to search for new solutions in IT healthcare.

CONFERENCES AT EHI LIVE 2017

The conference line-up for this year will feature more exciting and topical tracks than ever before. Brand NEW is the addition of the Primary Healthcare and Community and Population Health Management tracks, as well as Imaging and Diagnostics and the NHS Future Leadership Forum. Revamped tracks include the CIO & CCIO roundtables, Cyber Security and the Acute Health & Social Care Integration conferences.

We have made sure to give some variety to the sessions this year, allowing for optimum learning and debate with keynote presentations, real life case studies, debates and interactive panel discussions.

This year the speakers have all been handpicked for their ability to demonstrate the theme of 'bridging the gap between clinicians, technologies and patients'. This will give our delegates the opportunity to hear from CIOs, CCIOs and IT directors as well as Clinical Leads, Specialist Consultants and GPs, reinforcing that ehi LIVE is the place to be for both IT experts and clinicians alike.
