Graham Kendall, director of the Digital Healthcare Council, outlines the Council’s thoughts on digital health innovators and its strategy to support NHS Trusts with their strategic digital healthcare opportunities in the wake of COVID-19.
The Digital Healthcare Council (DHC) was set up in 2017 to promote a greater understanding of digital healthcare and the essential role it plays in solving many of the challenges facing the NHS and the wider health sector. Its members are industry leaders spanning the breadth of digital health and social care, delivering care directly to patients through a partnership model. Our collective vision is to create a digitally-enabled health ecosystem that works for both patients and healthcare professionals. That means being a key part of the solution to the most profound challenges facing healthcare right now, including tackling the elective backlog, making the most of existing capacity, integrating care across different providers and widening access to care.
Ultimately, our collective mission is to transform patient care with the assistance of technology; keeping people healthier for longer, making the most of clinicians’ expertise and saving money for the UK taxpayer. We also want to influence the wider stakeholder community, including the Government on the benefits of a futureproofed, digitally-led, healthcare system.
