After a packed two days of keynotes and workshops, Digital Health Summer Schools 2019 has come to an end.
It’s been a busy few days and to keep the Digital Health Summer Schools buzz going, we’ve rounded up some of the best reactions and tweets that have been posted over the last few days.
On Thursday attendees heard international keynotes from Nick Adkins, John Halamka and Margunn Aenestad.
Day one also saw the launch of the Shuri Network, which aims to support and encourage women of black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds in digital health roles.
The Northern Ireland contingent to #DHSS19 got #pinksocks. Just a slightly amazing start to the day! @Ruth_E_Marks @AlisonFerris3 @shanemuk We SEE you!! @sbreen71 @warner_md @nickisnpdx @DHSummerSchools pic.twitter.com/aif9e6atkW

I must have attended dozens, maybe a 100 conferences in my life and this is the first time I have ever seen an all female and women of colour panel at an event
We see manels all the time. They are the default

Day two kicked off with CCIO Network chair, Dr Joe McDonald, who looked back at his time as chair of the Network in a talk that included plenty of musical references.
Delegates also heard from NHSX CEO, Matthew Gould, who answered questions ranging from reducing the burdens on clinicians, to the Global Digital Exemplar (GDE) programme.

A brilliant start to day 2 #DHSS19 @matthewsgould chatting to us all about @nhsx and his focus for the next few months. He recognises “structural impediments” and has a genuine desire to remove them. Having worked in Trusts and now at @NHSDigital this is music to my ears

Conversation with @matthewsgould from @NHSX at @DHSummerSchools talking about simplifying #informationgovernance to share records across the NHS much more easily. Bring it on! #dhss19 pic.twitter.com/sbSYnFDUV7

Matt from IT at @DHSummerSchools #dhss19 talking about how we are paralysed by unclear guidance on information governance…and how addressing this is one of the top priorities for @NHSX. Excellent @matthewsgould! pic.twitter.com/sqGUug4kYb

A different perspective – talking about how hard it is for local government to work with the NHS – jointly we need to help citizens -very inspiring @tomriordan thank you #DHSS19 pic.twitter.com/9r8nWMXU5V

As we headed towards the afternoon sessions, the CIO track heard from Will Smart, who offered food for thought on his time as CIO of NHS England, ahead of his departure from the organisation later this year.
Great to be heading to Leeds for #DHSS19 – talking about CIO professionalism. Ending my time as national CIO where it started three years ago.

Thanks to everyone who attended Digital Health Summer Schools 2019 and we look forward to seeing everyone again next year.
#DHSS19 Really great meeting, my first visit didn't get pink socks but have got some great ideas, inspiration and I'm back to feeling invigorated about being a CCIO!
