Whilst considering developing digital technology there is a need to remember that people are at the centre. How can we make their life better and that of care providers too?

Digital by default

Being able to access the right data and information at the right time is critical to enabling transformation and delivering optimal care.

Digital transformation is a key enabler in implementing the NHS Long Term Plan and there are a number of significant areas where digital capability is making a difference.

Sharing information - Developing local digital strategy in a way that is user-friendly, effective and efficient.
Integrating care records - Interoperability allows for faster, safer and better quality decisions, and provides a complete picture. Integration can reduce unnecessary referrals and admissions and helps clinicians to offer the most appropriate treatments.
Supporting health and wellbeing - Key to the success of the prevention agenda is the use of digital technology such as patient-facing websites and online apps to support self-management of health.
