A Healthcare Debate on Open Source VNAs

SynApps and Alfresco present a panel of healthcare and technology practitioners to debate Open Source VNAs.  This event will take place mid 2015.

Open Source VNA launch event – March 26th

SynApps and Alfresco are to host a launch event for an Open Source VNA on March 26th.

NHS health leaders, NHS Chief Clinical Information Officers and other HIT stakeholders are being invited to hear more at a special launch event being held on March 26 (1.30 – 4.30 pm) at the Park Plaza Hotel, Leeds, LS1 5NS.

The event will explore the benefits of a VNA-based approach to creating powerful Clinical Archives using the only Open Source document management platform suited for the purpose, from Alfresco.

Attendees will hear from NHS England’s Open Source Programme internal champion Peter Coates, as well as from Open Source VNA thought leader Rachel Dunscombe, CIO at Bolton NHS Foundation Trust. Coates will explore how health and social care organisations can make the most of the growing range of Open Source systems coming on-stream, plus how to get them to yield flexible integration and lower costs, while Dunscombe will discuss why it is important to the NHS and in particular Hospitals to bring together Open Source and VNA technologies.

“We are delighted to be offering “certified” technology which we know works to Trusts via the highly promising route of Open Source,” confirmed SynApps Solutions Sales & Marketing Director, Mark Winstone.

“The Leeds launch promises to be an excellent forum to look at the new product, engage in detailed discussion with VNA and Open Source technology pioneers and experts, as well as network with peers in NHS HIT,” he added.
