This Digital Health South East Regional event has three excellent presentations, two of which are sharing national programmes with you and their rollout progress in your area and the third on a digital transformation project for Frimley Health NHSFT.

The Reasonable Adjustment Flag Project – an NHS Long Term Plan commitment.
Under the Equality Act 2010, organisations such as hospitals and GP surgeries must take steps (“reasonable adjustments”) to remove the barriers individuals face because of disability.  As part of the NHS Long Term Plan, by 2023/24, a ‘digital flag’ in the patient record will ensure staff know a patient has an impairment, such as a learning disability, autism, or a long-term condition. Hear from the national project team and from local sites as this important project is rolled out across the UK.
This session will help you understand:
– What does the flag do?
– How a flag can be accessed.
– What progress had been made in early adopter sites in the South East.
– How to get involved in this project.

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

In February NHSX 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.

This session will:
– Give an overview of the Digital Technology Assessment Criteria.
– Explain how it can be used by local teams to ensure digital health technology meets the national minimum baseline standards.
