Digital Transformation: App Edition led by Wigan Council & Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust 

Join frontline digitisation experts from Wigan Council & Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust for an exclusive digital Project Showcase, focusing on low-code mobile apps and eForms innovation.  

This online session sees pioneering organisations from UK health and local government delve into real-world front-end app projects and essentials for maintaining the pace of transformation. 

From revolutionary COVID-19 testing processes at iESE’s UK Council of the Year 2021, to streamlining patient observations to enhance mental health patient wellbeing, hosts share their experiences in taking a digital first, adaptable, and demand-based approach to transforming services in alignment with evolving government requirements.

  • Selection for the national COVID-19 testing pilot scheme by UK central government, developing and implementing a unique citizen solution at pace whilst remaining agile. 
  • The utilisation of eForms throughout the COVID-19 test booking service – from public submissions to the delivery of results.  
  • The role of low-code eForms – for data capture efficiencies, meeting demand surges and swifter responses to 300,000 residents in times of crisis. 
  • Using eForm technology to maintain social distance practices in healthcare, while simultaneously closing the gap for human error.
