Comments are being invited on Dumfries and Galloway Integration Joint Board’s draft Digital Health and Care Strategy.
The country’s digital health and care strategy was published in April last year and sets out the Scottish Government’s roadmap to create a health and care system, which embeds digital technology.
The draft Dumfries and Galloway digital health and care strategy is the local response.
It has been developed within the framework of the national strategy and sets the strategic direction for the Health and Social Care Partnership for digital health and care.
The Government’s roadmap to create a health and care system will be achieved through the national digital strategy’s six domains (key areas):
- National direction and leadership
- Information governance, assurance and cyber security
- Service transformation
- Workforce capability
- National digital platform
- Transition process
One of the ten priority areas of focus in the Dumfries and Galloway Integration Joint Board’s Health and Social Care Strategic Plan (2018 – 2021) is making the best use of technology. The IJB recognise that digital technology is critical to the delivery of excellent health and social care now and in the future.
This is the first local digital health and care strategy for Dumfries and Galloway. It builds on existing work and outlines future developments which will enable people to have more choice and control, making best use of the available resources and supporting the delivery of better outcomes for people.
An implementation plan will be developed in 2020, which will outline how this strategy will be delivered.
Please provide any comments and feedback on the draft by Wednesday 23rd December 23 by contacting: Ruth Griffith, Strategic Planning and Commissioning Manager (Digital Health, Long Term Conditions and Palliative Care) email: firstname.lastname@example.org
