Health Secretary launches ‘Vision for Digital, Data and Technology’

The Department for Health and Social Care have published a vision for digital, data and technology in health and care, outlining a ‘radical new approach’ to technology in the health and care system.

The document includes priorities for Infrastructure, Digital services, Innovation, Skills and culture and proposes an internet-first; public cloud-first approach.  

techUK’s Head of Health and Social Care, Ben Moody, commented:

“It is great to hear Matt Hancock reiterate his plans for a technologically advanced NHS and it is vital that local bodies are empowered to drive innovation throughout the system.

Technology has the potential to improve outcomes, make the NHS more financially sustainable, and offer the public a much better service than many currently get. We will be responding to the Vision document and publishing a list of key priorities for the Health Secretary in advance of his speech at our Health and Social Care annual dinner on 14 November.”

The West Suffolk MP has made the use of technology in the NHS one of his main priorities since taking up the post in summer. techUK members who would like to contribute to our response should get in touch.
