In the last decade, technology has transformed almost every aspect of our lives from the way in which we bank and shop to how we date and travel. Organisations work faster and on a greater scale, and people expect to be able to quickly access convenient personalised services wherever they are.
With expensive to treat conditions on the rise and people living longer we are now harnessing the power of information and technology to help the NHS meet the increasing demand described in the Five Year Forward View. Doing so is helping us provide care and services that are convenient for patients, efficient for the NHS and which get people the right care for them as quickly as possible.
Our new digital services and support are empowering people to take control of their health and care through secure online access to clinicians, personalised and relevant health information, digital tools and advice that helps them to better manage their conditions.
