Digital Health Regional Networks Events is a new monthly programme of regional best practice events for NHS IT leaders, focused on sharing digital best practice underway in a particular NHS region.

The new regional events series builds on the popularity of our Digital Responses to Covid-19 Webinar Series and best practice webinars and are designed to provide the opportunity for a wide range of NHS digital leaders to share local work and knowledge with others. The aim is to showcase and discuss best practice on digital health and data within a region of the English NHS.

This webinar is open to NHS and public sector workers, charitable sectors, academics, and network sponsors only. You will receive confirmation of your registration once this is confirmed.

Digital Virtual Outpatient Application
Fiona McDonald, Clinical Lead, CSO, NHS Health Call

Digital Outpatients gives NHS trusts a way of managing their out-patient clinics digitally. NHS teams can manage a mix of face-to-face, telephone and virtual interactions. In addition, it manages the outputs from the appointment using digital tools, which all go back into the clinical record. It can also be adapted for primary care purposes. Digital Outpatients is an end-to-end digital solution so that organisations can manage their outpatient services.

Digital Outpatients is made up of a number of different modules which can be mixed and matched. Organisations can choose from:

  • Preferences
  • Correspondence (digital letters)
  • Appointment reminders
  • Pre-assessment questionnaires
  • Video consultation
  • COVID Safe Check arrivals
  • PROMs / post-assessment questionnaires

Information is sent directly into local clinical systems by integrating with Trust Integration Engines.

Lee Rickles, Programme Director, CIO, Yorkshire & Humber Care Record

Yorkshire & Humber Care Record is supporting the region’s vision to connect care to improve people’s lives. It does this by securely connecting health and care organisations, ensuring that real time data is available to clinical and care staff involved in a person’s care. It also helps us understand health and care needs and how they are likely to change in the future. But how does this help clinicians on the ground?  Dr Chris Stanley will explain the benefits from a GPs perspective.

The Digital Technology Assessment Criteria: embedding baseline standards for procuring digital technology

In February, we introduced the DTAC to help give staff, patients and citizens confidence that the digital health tools they use meet our clinical safety, data protection and cyber security standards. All digital health technologies (including apps) that are being trialled, purchased, embedded into pathways, or advocated to patients need to pass the DTAC prior to or at the point of commissioning or buying these technologies. Lauren Harkins will give an overview of the DTAC, and will explain how it can be used by local teams to ensure digital health technology meets the national minimum baseline standards.
