“I am determined to transform the way our National Health Service uses its wealth of untapped data to improve quality of care, to drive down costs and to give patients control over their own care." - Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State for Health
The NHS digital challenge is becoming more prominent amongst healthcare institutions across the UK. After the recent announcement from the Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, it’s become clear that electronic document and record management is not an addition anymore, it’s an obligation.
The biggest threat to NHS departments is mismanagement of medical records. This can have a damaging effect on hospitals and can lead to patient data loss. Having one centralised system where all the patient records are held, significantly improves the management of information and makes the hospital journey smoother and more efficient. Moreover, transferring all patient information from paper to one digital repository of data reduces cost, mitigates risk of losing patient data and allows instant access to medical records.
With an additional £1bn government spending boost, and different schemes, such as Tech Fund 1 and Tech Fund 2, hospitals can now make this digital challenge even more feasible.
