On Friday 15 June 2001, KMi hosted a workshop on the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to change practice in the National Health Service. The workshop was organized by the NHS Information and Communication Research Initiative (ICTRI - http://www.dis.port.ac.uk/ictri).

The workshop was opened by the programme management team at the Department of Health, Bill Maton Howarth and Dick Curry. Speakers included researchers from places such as Sheffield, London, Brunel, Aberdeen and Newcastle. And topics ranged from standards and effectiveness in telemedicine to web access and clinical practices in nursing.

KMi work was showcased in an afternoon session when Peter Scott (KMi) and Fiona Brooks (IHSR, Luton University) presented work on a digital discourse system for professional communication that is currently running in Kettering General Hospital.
