Health experts react to the new draft Standards and Interoperability Strategy released by the NHS Transformation Directorate
Responding to the publication of NHS England’s Standards and Interoperability Strategy, Helen Davies, NHS GP and Clinical Director of Doctrin said:
“For too long inconsistent standards have prohibited interoperability, compromising patient safety and the delivery of seamless care on a daily basis. Historically, delivering integrated care has not been simple and, as we introduce integrated care systems and primary care networks, we need to ensure that we have the right foundations in place to make integration as seamless as possible.
“It is also very important that we have clear standards and requirements for newcomers both within the NHS and technology providers which encourage innovation while giving assurance that procurement happens at a high standard. If momentum continues with this strategy then real progress will be made towards tackling these issues and building the foundations for a fullyintegrated and interoperable health system fit for all.”
