Review looks at how NHS can transform in a tech-enabled future

A new report looks to the future of the NHS and its transformation into a tech-enabled citizen centred healthcare service.  A world where information, appointments, and prescription ordering are all online, and health is monitored remotely, with data safely stored and personalised digital care the norm.

It follows an independent review by Laura Wade-Gery, in her capacity as Non-Executive Director of NHS England and Improvement, and subsequent interim Chair of NHS Digital, which looked to build on the progress made during the pandemic and ensure the centre of the NHS (defined as NHSEI, X and D) can lead the digitally enabled transformation of the wider healthcare system, supporting integrated care systems to deliver better citizen health.

The study sets out a series of recommendations to ensure a coherent approach to digital transformation in the NHS national bodies, that put data, digital and technology at the heart of how health services should be reformed.
