How to successfully 'do digital' with the UK's National Health Service

Felix Jackson felix.jackson@medDigital.com

Abstract

The NHS is deeply challenged by chronic underfunding and political strife with infighting between the politicians, management, and workers. Yet the vast majority of the UK population relies on this single organization for their entire life to provide their health care.

Meanwhile, health care is being revolutionized by new digital technologies which are enabling empowered patients and caregivers to begin taking more control over their own health.

But how do the small teams of innovative health care entrepreneurs launching these new digital technologies actually work with an organization which is as large and complex as the NHS?

In this talk, I will share my experience gained in the first cohort of the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator, advising on the Guys and St Thomas Hospital Charity Further Faster initiative, and working directly with the NHS to share how to get the NHS to adopt digital innovation faster.
