NHSE’s procurement for the Federated Data Platform and award of a £330m contract is story that has stretched over more than three years.
Foxglove has launched a campaign against the proposed Federated Data Platform (FDP) and Palantir, the frontrunner for the £480 million contract.
A report issued last month has slated the design of the government’s proposed NHS Federated Data Platform (FDP) and its procurement process.
NHS England has awarded a new contract worth £25 million to US data analytics giant Palantir to transfer current health service projects to the new FDP.
The NHS should be cautious about letting private data firms with little accountability to UK citizens gain access to their health data, campaigners say.
NHS England’s Federated Data Platform tender could set back data sharing in the NHS by raising privacy fears over approach and potential choice of supplier.
Palantir’s UK boss and the director of Foxglove will go head-to head in the closing debate at Rewired on how the NHS can benefit from technology and data.
