This webinar will provide an introduction to the Digital Child Health Programme which will transform the way we manage and inform parents and professionals about the health of children. The underpinning strategy ‘Healthy Children‘ sets out the case for restructuring our information services and systems for children, young people, parents and families so they can contribute fully to improving their health and wellbeing and collaborate easily with professionals across the spectrum of care. The health and care sector is undergoing transformation. Technology is fundamental to this transformation and is no longer on the edge of services, but is central to the delivery of health and care for both adults and children
NHS England’s Healthy Children: transforming child health information sets the strategic direction for the future investment and development of child health information systems supporting the ambitions of 5YFV and PHC2020 as well aligning with ‘Better Births’ to ensure that future maternity and children’s services meet the needs of women and their families by delivering care that is as safe as the best available.
