The digital transformation has begun in health and care, but with only 2% of people reporting a digitally-enabled transaction with the NHS, it continues to lag behind other industries.
As a community, we have the power to change that, for the benefit of our friends, family and wider society. The goal is to create a health care system that will improve the quality of care for patients.
Health and Social Care services in the UK continue to face unprecedented demands, pressurised budgets, complex organisational change and technology exposures that can devastate such as ransom attacks.By improving quality and driving up standards FEDIP, through its members, will play a key role in harnessing the benefits of the information revolution and in the transformation of modern health care.
Developing the capability and competence of those who take the FEDIP standard, will contribute to better specification, design, implementation and evaluation of information and communication systems. This will improve individual care, enhance population health outcomes and contribute to better processes of data collection, analysis and interpretation.
