The use of digital technology in the NHS

The Department of Health & Social Care (the Department) and the NHS have published plans to use digital technology to help transform the way the NHS works. This study will consider whether the Department and the NHS have developed a workable strategy to deliver their ambitions on digital technology and data; whether they understand the risks and barriers that will need to be overcome to achieve their aims; whether they have appropriate governance arrangements, and; whether they have the financial and human resources in place to deliver their plans.
