New care models: Harnessing technology
Rising demand for services, constrained funding and a multitude of workforce challenges require us to think differently about the way we deliver health and care services to meet people's needs and expectations.
Digital tools are key part of the answer to this set of challenges, and the NHS Five Year Forward View outlined ambitious plans to deliver a step-change in how health and care services use technology.
This publication explores how five vanguards are implementing innovative digital technology solutions at the heart of a new approach to care. They are:
- East and North Hertfordshire
- Better Care Together Morecambe Bay
- Better Together Mid Nottinghamshire
- Salford Together
- East Midlands Radiology Consortium
The report describes how the starting point for any project introducing new technology should be the perspective of the end users. Technological solutions should be co-produced with people who use services and clinicians to ensure that the solutions are anchored in their needs and experiences.
