This Government has announced that it will provide £40 million to reduce National Health Service staff login times, tackling one of the main technology frustrations facing NHS staff.

NHSX is leading on a programme to deliver faster access to systems using this money. Discovery work is underway and a milestone plan is currently being developed that will include the roll out of single-sign on where appropriate.

The discovery work will also look at helping organisations speed up access to systems and simplify logon processes for their staff.

Harnessing the best technology will improve care for patients and reduce burden on staff.
