Health+Care, incorporating the Digital Healthcare Show, provides a platform for more than 10,000 senior health and social care professionals to come together to forge new partnerships and productive ways of working in challenging times.
The main focus is on the delivery of cultural, service, system and digital transformation that’s essential to securing the future of health and social care systems. Health+Care is unique because it gives colleagues from across the NHS, local government, care homes and the voluntary sector the opportunity to come together on an equal footing to network, collaborate and share learning.

EIDO Healthcare will have a strong presence at the show in 2018 and we are looking forward to unveiling our new digital products which are designed to support the consent process and improve communication between patient and treatment team.
EIDO Verify is a digital communication system that informs and surveys patients before and after a hospital procedure.
EIDO Vault is a reliable digital consent solution that uses an iPad to take a digital signature from both patient and clinician.
Both of these new products use the content from EIDO’s industry-leading surgical information library in order to ensure a robust and reliable consent process.
To find out more about the new EIDO products or to see a demo, visit us at our stand. We will also have printed copies of the 2018 Annual Health Care review. This is our second annual review of recent legal cases relevant to informed consent. It is essential reading for clinicians and surgeons that wish to say abreast of current requirements for obtaining legal informed consent from patients.
Healthcare professionals that are interested in learning more about obtaining informed consent will benefit from attending 2 of the conference sessions specifically:
Informed consent: What are the barriers to shared decision making? (28th June, 11:00am, IPC Theatre 2)
Presented by Prof Janet Wilson, a council member of the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh and leads the RCSEd ICONS initiative – ‘Informed CONsent, sharing the decision’, which forms the basis of her presentation.
Informed Consent: How do we support clinicians to empower patients? (28th June, 2:45pm, Digital Theatre 3)
Presented by Dr Ben Thomas, Chair of the All-Wales Group and Jonathan Webb, Head of Safety and Learning for the Welsh Risk Pool.
This presentation explores how leadership teams and clinical support systems can assist busy clinicians in ensuring patients have the essential information required to achieve informed consent.
For nearly 20 years, EIDO Healthcare has been providing resources and support to help health professionals reduce the risk of litigation. Our library of nearly 400 treatment-specific informed consent patient information documents, each document bearing a Plain English Campaign Crystal Mark, is used in over 50% of NHS Trusts and 80% of private hospitals in the United Kingdom.
