The Department’s technology vision sets the foundation for a new generation of digital and technology services focused on user need and interoperability, whilst safeguarding patient privacy and security. This will support delivery of the NHS Long Term Plan, transforming the health system by providing more integrated and person-centred care.

We have made significant investment in new technology for the National Health Service to support service delivery since 2013. This includes funds such as Safer Hospitals Safer Wards, Integrated Digital Care Records, Nurse Technology, Local Health and Care Records Exemplar, Electronic Prescribing and Global Digital Exemplars.
