The Lancaster London
The Five Year Forward View underlines how technology is key to addressing the main challenge facing the NHS: how to continue to improve quality and outcomes whilst facing significant increase in demand.  There is a £22billion challenge which roughly translates as caring for six patients for the cost of five.

Our focus at Expo and Awards 2016 was on three key themes which support the Five Year Forward View and where we think there is potential for real impact:                                                                           
Digital innovation
Medicines optimisation
Out of hospital services for older people.
