The National Health Executive hosted a debate, during the NHE365 Digital Healthcare virtual event, discussing about how there is an increase in demand for more digital tools to be used in healthcare and the use of electric monitoring is also in higher demand.
96% of young doctors have vocalized that they would rather use a mobile phone or smart technology to access medical records whilst treating patients. It is believed that using new technologies can improve patient care to a higher standard.
The Panel Included:
- James Freed, CDIO, Health Education England
- Delphine Fitouri – Head of Informatics – Bradford District Care NHS foundation
James has a depth of knowledge around how we can bring health care digitally as being the Chief Digital and Information Officer for Health Education England, along with his role as SRO of a Program responsible for delivering digital readiness to the three million staff in Health and Care in England.
Delphine also has a strong understanding as being Head of Informatics, Bradford District Care, NHS foundation. She has worked deeply involved in Data and Technology in Health for the last 12 years and in other Public Sector organisations alongside being vice-chair.
We asked important questions such as ‘How would you define the barriers between the technology and the workforce?’ ‘What is a technology Enhanced Workforce for Health and Care?’ James answered and explained “It is a set of tools to enable you to do your job better, deliver our outcomes better and digital can help with that”. Delphine agreed and said, “James’s approach is spot on”.
