HANDI Health Apps will be holding its Fall conference at the NEC, in Birmingham, UK, on November 4th and 5th. The conference will be co-located with the @EHI Live conference. The conference will hold 7 workshops over the two-days. Each workshop will have a panel of 3 or 4 speakers who will each spend 5 minutes to set the scene leaving 40 minutes for you to ask questions and contribute to the discussion.

The themes are:

Wearable Tech: Learn about the rapid development in wearable technology. How these will impact health, care and wellbeing and how you can get wearable devices working and integrated into your digital health strategy.

Integrating Apps: Hear about the challenges associated in getting apps integrated in to the digital health and care ecosystem and the technical and governance challenges associated with interoperability, patient held record and record access and federated information architectures.

HANDI-HOPD: Hear about the HANDI Open Platform Demonstrator and how you can use open standards to create and share clinical content and build apps that interoperate <www.handi-hopd.org>.

From Idea to App: Learn what’s involved from taking an app from an idea to sustainable product. How do you do it, what might it cost, how do you find partners to work with, what are the regulatory issues and what business models can work for you.

Apps in use: Hear from panelists (both developers and users) who have real world experience of health apps in use and discuss their successes, challenges, and what they have learned from their experiences.

Co-creation for care: This session will explore the latest thinking about the design of new models for care delivery by on patient centred design methods. This session will describe and draw on ongoing work by HANDI in the development of digitally enabled, blended service models for mental health, but the approach has general applicability for all care sectors.

Gamification: The session will explore the use of gamification in health and care services to improve engagement of patients and service users, improve wellbeing and facilitate lifestyle and behavioural change and will discuss apps and digital tools that use a gamification approach.
