Technology in healthcare

The nature of healthcare is changing, to a far more consumerist position. Our citizens have an expectation that they can access healthcare and care professionals when and where they need them, rather than when they happen to be available.

Technology now allows citizens to monitor their health and activity levels by themselves through mobile apps (Mhealth), telehealth (Flo) or wearable technology. The need to take up valuable clinician time to take basic health readings is no longer necessary.

The UK population is increasingly diverse. Language, age and other factors mean that traditional methods of communication between clinician and patient are changing. The growth in video consultations and the access to high speed broadband connections and smartphones means that patients now demand a modern healthcare system that can interact with them in a modern way. The growth in social media and the use of video technology presents new opportunities as well as challenges.

This website is designed to provide all the support necessary for staff working in health and care, as well as patients, to harness the potential that technology in healthcare offers. There are helpful resources that prevent you having to reinvent the wheel as well as useful video case studies and tutorials that can be shared with health and care staff.
