An exploration into the future
As the NHS begins to recover from the pandemic and sets in motion the transformation to integrated care systems, finance and system leaders must take a key role in harnessing the fast-paced world of technology and understanding its relationship to efficiencies and the workforce.
In this session Darren and James will share the work being done at The Royal Free on Robotic Process Automation (RPA). Working in partnership with Blue Prism, the trust has been supporting staff in the workplace by creating more time for value-added work and time spent with patients through the use of automation on certain systems and processes. The session will also look at the trust’s pioneering work on use of RPA in improving patient pathways.
As well as examples from the Royal Free, Darren and James will touch on their Centre of Excellence and NHS Digital Exchange platforms which facilitate collaboration and the sharing and repurposing of solutions, underlining the passion for sharing knowledge and avoiding reinvention of the wheel.
The session will explore the impact of the pandemic on advancements and effectiveness in RPA technology, and will finish with a look to the future at new innovations and emerging technologies that will support finance and system leaders over the years to come.
