Better technology is vital to ensuring the future of the NHS. In 2019, health secretary, Matt Hancock launched NHSX, a new joint organisation for digital, data and technology which aims to diagnose diseases earlier, free up staff time and empower patients to take greater control of their own healthcare.
Though with the NHS Test and Trace system being an unfortunate disaster, far removed from the "world beating" solution described by the Prime Minister, has confidence been dented in what is possible for the future?
What are the key challenges in improving our nation’s digital health, and what ground have we successfully covered so far in our march toward the digital future?
