A national focus on the value of technology in healthcare formed a core component of the Long Term Plan, and the challenges of the pandemic have only accelerated the need and opportunity for digital support. Putting more control in the hands of patients and enabling care providers to provide a comprehensive service means modernising digital services, systems and engagement. Implementation requires collaboration and partnership across departments and between organisations, value requires effective management.
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 improve capacity, improve experience and quality of care.
Open to NHS organisations who have implemented successful digital projects enabling patients and staff to manage information about health services more effectively.
