Well Connected

Society needs better health and care

We believe that professionals who are able to harness the capabilities of information technology and care about the communities they represent can deliver citizen impact by coming together to transform the way we use technology.

Well Connected is brought to you by the Fed-IP professional bodies named below. Together, we’re bringing together people with shared values, and empowering them as a community of professionals, watch the video opposite to find out more.

Why it matters

The digital transformation has begun in health and care, but with only 2% of people reporting a digitally-enabled transaction with the NHS, it continues to lag behind other industries.

As a community, we have the power to change that, for the benefit of our friends, family and wider society. The goal is to create a health care system that will improve the quality of care for patients.

Services in the UK continue to face unprecedented demands, pressurised budgets, complex organisational change and technology exposures that can devastate such as ransom attacks.

David Evans, BCS Policy and Community Director at BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, caught up with Dr Wachter MD to discuss The Wachter Review: Making IT Work: Harnessing the Power of Health Information Technology to Improve Care in England

How can I get involved?

The way we use information and technology to deliver health and care has a critical impact on citizens and our communities.

The best is only possible when everyone puts our citizens and communities first, and works together.All those involved in health and care owe a duty to our communities to strive together for the very best for them, and in turn need to be supported and recognised when they do.
