The transition towards digital healthcare has become an entrenched reality, shaped by the collective anticipation for immediate digital access to services. This transformation is not just about keeping pace with technological advances but is fundamentally reshaping patient empowerment and enabling providers to deliver more personalised care. This shift necessitates the modernisation of digital infrastructures, including the pivotal integration of AI and ensuring seamless system interoperability. Successful implementation hinges on collaborative and partnership efforts across departments and organisations, underpinned by strategic and effective management to unlock true value. 

This award is designed to recognise successful initiatives which have used technology and digital systems to improve access for patients to their care and have enabled staff to optimise capacity, improve experience and quality of care.  


Open to NHS organisations who have implemented successful digital projects, delivering impact and enabling access to services and care through digital channels. Solution providers helping the NHS and health sector organisations are invited to enter the HSJ Partnership Awards, which celebrate collaboration with the private sector.
