  • Overview

As the momentum to modernise the NHS through digital transformation continues, a new initiative has been launched to support progress. NHSX came into existence on 1st July 2019. With a budget of more than £1bn per year its mission is to provide staff and patients with the technology that is required to fulfill the ambitions of The Future of Healthcare policy paper and the NHS 10-year plan. The organisation is made up of expertise brought together into one team from the Department of Health and Social Care, NHS England and NHS Improvement and has a mandate to digitally enable the NHS through programmes of transformation and lead policy, implementation and change.

NHSX’s main responsibilities for NHS technology, digital and data include: the setting of national policy; encourage new technological innovations; support digital skills and culture; development and sharing of best practices; drive interoperability; set IT standards; and improve procurement.

Open Forum Events invite you to join us at the DigiHealth UK-Delivering Digital Transformation conference for an update on the latest government proposals to transform the NHS through Digital, Data and Technology. The emphasis of the day will be on the practical: this is an opportunity to hear from a programme of high-level speakers discussing the future policies and implementation strategies for a 21st century healthcare system.Delegates will:

• Gain an understanding of the new structural organisation for IT strategy and the allocation of responsibilities to deliver technological transformation
• Receive greater insight into the programmes of work that are to be progressed and built upon, whilst ensuring integrity and security are upheld
• Hear how the workforce is to be supported with the necessary training and skills to fully release the potential of digital technologies
• Learn from examples of best practice that are already making significant impacts to patients and staff

The emphasis of the day will be on the practical: this is an opportunity to hear from a programme of high-level speakers discussing the future policies and implementation strategies for a 21st century healthcare system.

 

NHSX has been created with a team of about 300 people and will bring together digital policy, strategy and delivery into one body. The organisation is committed to improving the lives of both patients and staff by promoting the use of technology. Its focus is based upon 5 missions:

• Reducing the burden on clinicians and staff, so they can focus on patients;
• Giving people the tools to access information and services directly;
• Ensuring clinical information can be safely accessed, wherever it is needed;
• Improving patient safety across the NHS; and
• Improving NHS productivity with digital technology


Some initial aims include working with NHS mental health and cancer policy teams to explore how technology can better support patients and improve user experience. Also, the ambition is to embed new internet-based technical architecture across the health and social care system along with setting technology and data standards throughout the NHS.

Monitoring of budgets is also a key responsibility for NHSX and, following a review on technological transformation spending, has already reduced the number of programmes to 10 priority areas. These are:

NHS app and citizen ID
Digital child health and maternity
Integrating community providers (including pharmacists, optometrists, dentists and ambulances)
Screening
Booking, referrals and appointments management
Standards (including medication standards)
Primary care
Urgent and emergency care
Social care
Local capability (including LHCR, HSLI, GDEs and Carter money)

Interoperability is a particular area of concern as currently too many systems are unable to talk to one another, making the sharing of important data and patient information difficult in a safe and secure manner. Programmes that support interoperability are a priority such as the Local Health and Care Records Exemplars. The Global Digital Exemplar programme is also set to continue and both these will feed into the sharing of best practice that NHSX is keen to provide. The NHS Digital Academy is set to remain in existence as it supports current and future Chief Clinical Information Officers and Chief Information Officers.

"Using Technology to Improve the Experience for Pre Operative Patients"

An online preoperative assessment programme has been recognised by The Association of Anaesthetists by winning the 2019 Award for Innovation in Anaesthesia, Critical Care and Pain. MyPreOp works by a patient entering their information into an account they are given when they are told they need an operation. They enter their information into MyPreOp. Patients own their account and choose to share their information with the healthcare provider. It aims to empower and engage patients when it comes to their care.

Adam Lewis, Portfolio Delivery Director - Empower the Person, NHS Digital (invited)

"The NHS App and NHS Login"

The NHS App provides a simple and secure way for people to access a range of NHS services on their smartphone or tablet. The NHS App was successfully tested by more than 3,000 patients from 34 GP practices between September and December 2018. NHSX intend to ‘’keep the app thin and let others use the platform that we have created to come up with brilliant features on top.” This will involve opening up APIs for use by third parties, who can then develop specialised apps and services to plug into the underlying platform.
