The Future NHS Award
To a person or team that has successfully trialled and embedded change to make better use of data and digital technology, provide more convenient access to services and information for patients and improve support for staff.
This award seeks to highlight individuals, teams and organisations that are successfully embracing the opportunities that come from advances in medical technology, data and connectivity.
This could be through:
- developing ways of using wearable devices and apps to monitor patients or support them to manage their own conditions;
- harnessing technology to make their services more connected, efficient and effective, freeing up staff time and resources to improve patient care, or;
- using data to provide analysis and evidence which helps professionals better target services to prevent ill health or the need for crisis care.
