Future-fit? The future of the NHS is tech-led; is your practice equipped for it?

In conjunction with our partners, Brother UK, we’re undertaking research into the barriers to full digital transformation in general practice – the findings of which will be published in a white paper.

To do this successfully, we need your insight and experiences so, please spare just a few short minutes to TAKE OUR SURVEY to help us with our research – you will be entered into a draw to win an iPad mini 4.

Daily, practices are juggling patient factors, system factors and supply-side issues, such as funding and workforce issues. A digital-first system is being championed as a means of streamlining these and alleviating the subsequent pressures – creating a paperless, streamlined practice.

Powerful Patients, Paperless Systems; how technology can renew the NHS sets out the government’s aim to make the NHS paperless and wholly digital – calling for pagers, fax machines and paper records to be replaced by integrated digital systems. The vision is to provide patients and healthcare organisations with the latest medical data that can be easily stored and shared between GP surgeries, hospitals and other care providers.

In a sector managing with stretched resources, it’s critical that time is taken back and it’s clear such efficiencies can only be realised through digital transformation – or, more specifically, the application of good technology. As outlined in the paper Powerful Patients, Paperless Systems, an integrated, fully-digital healthcare system can ease the pressures currently faced by eradicating cumbersome paper, streamlining processes and even reducing missed appointments.

In an ideal world digital-first practices would be immediately embraced but, for some practices, a simple switch is just not possible. The objective of our research is to establish the challenges you face when it comes to implementing digital-first systems and to better understand how practices can improve efficiency, save time and reduce workload through this technology.

So, in conjunction with our partner, Brother UK, we are undertaking research into digital transformation in general practice – the findings of which will be published in a white paper and shared with the sector.
