Our Information Management and Technology (IM&T) digital vision and mission will be realised through clear, prioritised digital objectives.
These objectives will be delivered through focused programmes of work that optimise our access to and use of digital technology. Better access and use of technology will positively impact patients, improve system and service sustainability, and deliver against wider national NHS ambitions.
Our new Digital Strategy looks at technology, processes, workflows, and care pathways, ensuring that we provide evolving digital solutions that maintains, and improves current service provision to help deliver a holistic ‘health and care’ service which serves everyone and reduces health inequalities.
We are committed to working effectively with our system partners to ensure that information is available to deliver to the NHS ‘RightCare’ principles. Making sure that the right person has the right care, in the right place, at the right time, by making best use of available resources.
Digital solutions will be central to delivering effective healthcare for the island. We will provide the island with connected care, informed care, and safe care.
We will help deliver seamless service transition between Ambulance, Acute, Mental Health and Community by reducing duplication and enabling an ‘Integrated Care Service’ to all.
