Digital maturity of local health and social care systems: the industry perspective

10.00, Friday 21 July 2017

Academy of Medical Sciences

On 21 July 2017, the Academy’s FORUM, in partnership with the Oxford Academic Health Science Network (AHSN), held a roundtable to discuss the digital maturity of local health and social care system. 

Chaired by Professor Gary Ford FMedSci, this roundtable brought together participants from across industry including pharmaceutical, digital healthcare and health data analysis stakeholders, amongst others, to explore the industry view of digital maturity in health systems.  

This roundtable was part of Oxford AHSN, Greater Manchester AHSN and Arden & GEM AHSN's ongoing project to develop a toolkit for helping health care providers to assess the effectiveness of their digital systems. Digital systems are a key driver of improved health outcomes through better connectedness and collaboration. The model will support local healthcare providers to develop the digital element of their Sustainability and Transformation Plans and drive better integration and coordination of digital material for service delivery and research. 

A full report of the meeting has been published and can be found on the sidebar. This event was by invitation only. To find out more about this event or the Academy's FORUM please contact
