Connected healthcare: how data will save lives

Data saves lives and connected MedTech will be key to ensuring this data is easily accessible and actionable. Louise Frampton spoke to Mindray UK’s digital health experts to find out how patient safety, efficiency and clinical decision making could be enhanced though improved interoperability, artificial intelligence and mobile monitoring solutions.

Digital transformation of health and social care is a top priority for the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and NHS England (NHSE). The system’s long-term sustainability depends on it. The Government’s plans include £2 billion of funding to support electronic patient records to be in all NHS Trusts and help over 500,000 people to use digital tools to manage their long-term health conditions in their own homes.1

The key to advancing this digital healthcare vision will be the integration of medical devices and patient monitoring systems into the electronic patient record (EPR). Trusts are working to achieve a paperless vision, but for this to happen they need to eliminate the many manual data entries required. With a plethora of medical devices, monitors, and IT systems, from a variety of vendors, interoperability will be the cornerstone of the digital vision for future healthcare delivery. As the NHS strives towards more integrated care, there will be new challenges to overcome to enable the sharing of data across locations, between the acute setting, primary and social care, as well as patients’ homes.
