The Impact of The Digital Health Record

Posted on: 21/02/2020

Since its founding on the 5th July 1948, the NHS has taken centre stage. Pride and joy of the British people. As a central institution, the NHS represents hard work, endeavour and care; and ensures that access to healthcare, is a universal right, and not a privilege to be enjoyed by the few.

Britain is also blessed with the presence of dedicated private healthcare professionals, who just like the NHS, provide world beating patient care across the nation. But, despite the positive acclaim, the doctors and nurses of Britain’s health services still struggle with the immense challenge of data management; causing critics to argue that the health service is underproductive, inefficient, and lacking in the appropriate resources.

In fairness, Data management is undoubtedly hard. Keeping important patient data stored correctly, with the right access, and the right safety, requires a tailored and considered approach.

Until very recently, healthcare practitioners have been forced to rely upon paper-based data management systems. Managing paper based health records has undoubtedly, over time, proven to be rather unbearable.

It was recently reported that healthcare practitioners often spend as much time on paperwork, as they do treating patients. That’s why healthcare professionals up and down the land are delighted by the introduction of new tech, and new software, such as OpenEyes, that are helping to save time, money, and lives. As an industry often criticised for failing to modernise in step with other sectors, with the help of digitalisation, healthcare is now stepping up to the mark.

For practitioners, new digital tools are changing the game for when it comes to patient care. Digital tools are enabling the doctors and nurses of the NHS to act faster, more efficiently, and with greater purpose. With the ability to access vital personal data at a moment notice, new Digi tech is accommodating for greater patient care analysis, and enabling practitioners to not only track patients, but predict which patients may be vulnerable in the near future.

In a quest to gain a greater insight into the digital transformation in healthcare, Executive TV’s latest programme, entitled, The Impact of The Digital Health Record, takes a closer look at the digitalisation process. We consider the challenges involved with systems migration.  we meet with industry leading businesses, hard-working practitioners, and respected thought leaders to discuss the benefits of digitalisation. We review the latest technology, and we consider in detail, the benefits of digital health records.

The Impact of The Digital Health Record will be first broadcast on our usual channel, Sky 191 on Sunday 23rd February at 10.45, and then, on Sunday 08th March at 10.45am.

After the initial broadcast, the programme will be available at with the rest of our digital archive.
