Industry-led health technology event launches this October

Govnet Communications has announced the launch of its flagship health sector exhibition: HETT - Healthcare Excellence Through Technology 2019.

Taking place on the 1-2 October 2019 at ExCeL London, and supported by partners NHS Digital, NHS England, the AHSN Network and techUK, HETT 2019 will connect health technology providers with digital and IT leadership teams from across the public and private healthcare ecosystem.

After an extensive consultation period with key health industry stakeholders, HETT 2019 will act as a platform for the health sector's leading technology suppliers to work with NHS Trusts, Clinical Commissioning Groups, national bodies and private hospitals in tackling the biggest tech challenges facing the healthcare sector, including IT legacy issues, system interoperability, data security and implementation.

On the new show direction, Corby Ganesh, Portfolio Director – Public Sector Events, commented:
“Connecting senior leaders with innovative technology suppliers and disruptors from across healthcare to solve the sector's most pressing challenges, HETT has been designed by the industry, for the industry, with the specific aim of tackling legacy issues, driving interoperability and overcoming financial constraints, to realise the most exciting opportunities to improve healthcare provision and delivery through successful adoption of technology.

“Our ambition is for HETT to become the destination of choice for healthcare leaders looking to source the latest health technology solutions, learn about industry developments and best practice, and collaborate with the rest of the health ecosystem to drive transformation.”

Dr Shyamal Mashru, CCIO at Barnet Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust, said: “In my role as CCIO I am looking primarily for value across my whole Trust. HETT is an important event for me; I can source new solutions around EPS, virtual consultations and AI, learn how to tackle key legacy and interoperability issues, and network with other NHS trusts.”

HETT 2019 will feature over 120 leading and emerging suppliers of health technology solutions, with the likes of EMIS Health, Toshiba, Bittium, Imprivata, and Servelec already confirmed to demonstrate their expertise.
