Scotland’s Digital Health & Care Event DigiFest2020 Online from: 1 – 11 December

Scotland’s largest annual digital health and care event is back and for the first time it is being delivered virtually!

Digital health and care solutions have had a year of rapid scale up and development. Taking time to reflect and learn about how digital solutions in Scotland and internationally have grown and been adopted is the focus of this year’s DigiFest.

The DigiFest2020 Steering Group, led by Margaret Whoriskey of the Scottish Government’s Digital Health and Care Directorate, working on the programme for the event which will highlight the range of digitally enabled services in different settings.

In addition to a programme of sessions spanning 9 days, DigiFest included an Expo area and Poster programme.


Supported by our colleagues from BCS Health Scotland, poster abstract submissions were invited from staff or students based in Scotland, UK & Internationally – working or studying in health and social care, housing, third sector or academic settings to represent a mix of Digital service delivery & research projects.
30 successful Poster presenters were invited to join DigiFest live to share:
  1. a PDF of an A1 sized digital poster in portrait layout
  2. a 2 minute audio or video recording of the authors poster presentation

The Chair of the Poster Review Panel hosted a live question and answer session each day with the presenters. Posters were also added to the virtual Poster Wall to be viewed by all attendees.
