Delivering Internet First in health and care: Working groups

To support the government strategy of moving to internet-based provision and the architecture principles described in the Secretary of State technology vision, The Future of Healthcare, NHS Digital has been asked to:

  •       define the minimum set of standards to which systems and networks should be aligned
  •       consider the future network provision across health and social care
  •       provide guidance and support for the remediation of digital services in health and social care so that they are presented over the internet

Following the publication of the Internet First policy and guidance in May 2019, NHS Digital would like to work with industry and health and social care organisations on the next stage to deliver Internet First.

A number of working groups will be established to support the development of the Internet First target operating model (TOM) and associated network connectivity model.   

An initial ‘open’ webinar is scheduled for IT leaders in industry and health and social care organisations for Wednesday, 18 September at 12:30 pmThis will be followed by a series of specialist working groups between September and December 2019.
