Now in its 9th year, this is the only event of its kind to provide a platform for a wide mix of decision makers to network and discuss the latest in electronic medication management and electronic prescribing.
The agenda evolves each year in line with the industry developments and latest initiatives. It looks beyond only implementation experiences and focuses in on what is new i.e. interesting customisations and innovations, how sites are managing complexities and the work being done in speciality areas.
Critically, it brings together a diverse cross section of decision makers from pharmacists to nursing staff, medical staff, IT support and project teams.
This is reflected in the high level and wide ranging multidisciplinary perspectives featured in the conference program.
