Theme / Aims / Invitation

Conference theme

The theme for the 2013 SIHI conference is " From 'Big Data' to Collective Wisdom? "

How can information change practice and culture in health and social care? Why is there such tolerance of unsafe processes in the NHS? Will information transparency help to break down a bullying culture where it persists? Why is there still such an information gulf between care sectors? Can operational care data reliably guide individual patient management and service commissioning? Is the latest 'paperless NHS' aspiration achievable and, if so, how?


Fundamentally we are asking what is happening to the 'wisdom quotient' of health and social care and looking at inspiring examples of excellence.

The programme will feature keynote speakers and a range of invited and submitted presentations.


Proposals are invited for presentations that address any of the above issues. Please send a 100-150 word abstract of your proposed talk to the Programme Chair as soon as possible. Proposals will be considered up until the time when the programme is finalised.


If you'd like to participate in the conference, either as a speaker or as a delegate, please contact us.

We'll let you know when the programme is arranged and when registration is open.

The conference will bring together those who are working on all aspects of health informatics, including:

  • clinicians of all types
  • health service managers
  • system developers and integrators
  • patient representatives
  • social care managers
  • service providers
  • researchers and educators
  • and others with an interest in the application of ICT to deliver better health and social care
