-The one thing that the NHS cannot afford to do is to remain a largely non digital system. Its is time to get on with it” Making IT work: Report of the National Advisory Group on Health Information Technology in England, Robert Wachter September 2016
-We believe that the NHS is ready to implement a successful national strategy to digitise the secondary care sector, and to create a digital and interoperable healthcare system… We cannot emphasise enough that the purpose is not to computerize, or to go paperless. The purpose is to radically improve the chances that important information will be available when and where it is needed, because no healthcare system or clinician can perform at the top of their potential if it is not…. Digitising is not simply about the technology, it is mostly about the people… to those who wonder whether the NHS can afford an ambitious effort to digitise in todays environment of austerity and a myriad of ongoing challenges, we believe the answer is clear: the one thing that the NHS cannot afford to do is to remain a largely non digital system. Its is time to get on with it.” Making IT work: Report of the National Advisory Group on Health Information Technology in England, Robert Wachter September 2016
-Twelve NHS hospital trusts have been selected to trail blaze new ways of using digital technology to drive radical improvements in the care of patients.” NHS England September 2016
This conference focuses on delivering the digital hospital and learning from the 12 national digital exemplar sites. Through national updates, extended sessions and practical case studies the conference will support you to drive forward digitization within your service.
-The experience of industry after industry has demonstrated that just installing computers without altering the work and the workforce does not allow the system and its people to reach its potential; in fact technology can sometimes get in the way. Getting it right requires a new approach, one that may appear paradoxical yet is ultimately obvious: digitizing effectively is not simply about the technology, its is mostly about the people” Making IT work: Report of the National Advisory Group on Health Information Technology in England, Robert Wachter September 2016
