Looking Back: ‘The Practice Rethink’

By Daniel Male - Accountable Care Journal

On October 3rd 2018, Doctorlink held an event at the Royal Society of Medicine in London, entitled ‘The Practice Rethink’.

With digital health and technology platforms in primary care continuing to divide opinion, the event brought together GPs, practice managers, commissioners and policymakers from across the UK to discuss how the implementation of technology could advance the GP practice of the future.

Expert speakers gave addresses covering topics such as the role of virtual GP consultations, the use of AI in the NHS and whether technology can ever stand up to expectations in healthcare, including:

  • Dr Jamie Brosch, the UK Medical Director of Doctorlink, who looked at the realities of UK primary care today from a GP’s perspective
  • Andrew Haldenby, the CEO of think tank Reform, who discussed the role of AI in Primary Care
  • Andrew Gardner, the CEO of Doctorlink, who spoke on the topic of reimagining the GP practice in 2025

The event ended with Dr Marci Thiel, Doctorlink’s Chief Innovation Officer, providing a live demonstration of Doctorlink’s intelligent digital platform.
