Why is digital transformation critical?

Digital transformation offers an opportunity, first, to address the competing demands faced by NHS staff on a daily basis by supporting the delivery of safe, cost-effective services through the secure and efficient sharing of information; and second, by meeting patients’ expectations, which are evolving as a result of the impact of digital services on other areas of consumer life.
