Digital Outpatients

With more than 100 million outpatient appointments every year, the NHS has a major opportunity to introduce more efficient and patient-focused digital outpatient services. Across the country, there are many examples of GPs, hospital trusts and community services innovating with the latest digital technology to reduce pressure on outpatient services, improve patient experience and save resources.

DigitalHealth.London is working with NHS Improvement and the 15 Academic Health Science Networks to support even more organisations to take advantage of digital technology. Building on the momentum of the pan-London workshop, ‘Channel shift to digital outpatients’, in October 2017, two projects are now underway, with regional workshops taking place across England and outpatients collaboratives in London.
