Beyond the front line – Reimagining connected healthcare in a post COVID world

Vodafone laying out healthcare’s next steps in a post COVID world. We believe that it’s now clear, more than ever that healthcare needs to be reimagined. We need to move towards a model of connected healthcare, where we take advantage of the possibilities of 21st century technology.

Led by Peter Evans, Senior Business Correspondent, The Sunday Times, we dive into what happens in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, arguably the biggest public health emergency the UK has faced in a century, with our panellists:

  • Professor Shafi Ahmed – Surgeon, Co-founder and CMO of Medical Realities

  • Dr. Nadine Hachach-Haram – Surgeon and Founder and CEO of Proximie

  • Anne Sheehan – Director, Vodafone Business UK

  • Scott Petty – Chief Technology Officer, Vodafone UK

A long-term commitment to delivering change

At Vodafone, we are committed to helping digital healthcare become mainstream. Already innovating to make this happen, we are aware that this transformation has been accelerated in health and social care by the global coronavirus pandemic. Now, more than ever, the huge value of technology and connectivity has been recognised at every level of the health and social care system.

Yet we recognise that budgets are still a challenge. The key is to truly innovate through technology. Using it for improved and more cost-efficient collaboration. To prevent equipment and medicine loss or theft. To better manage resource and capacity, including bed availability. And to integrate records across systems and devices for a superior patient experience.

Vodafone is a purpose-led business. Just like the health and social care sectors. That’s why we’ve made a series of commitments that include prioritising mission critical communications; providing network capacity and services for critical government functions, especially hospitals and emergency calls; and improving the delivery of information to the public.
