What does Matt Hancock's vision for “full, frictionless” data access mean? And how can you play a role?

The recently published policy paper “The future of healthcare: our vision for digital, data and technology in health and care”

sets a strong vision and direction for the digital transformation of the NHS. One of the guiding principles is that every service must be designed around users’ needs, including patients and the public. The policy paper also clearly states that "citizens who wish to personlise their use of health and care services should be able to access their care records" and that "every patient must have full, frictionless access to all of their health records to use in our growing ecosystem of healthtech solutions and services".

BUT are patients armed with the appropriate level of health literacy? What are the legal and security implications for the NHS?  And are medical records simply ready for patient viewing at all?  If you are interested in participating in this one-day event, please click on the button below to get in touch and to view the full agenda and list of confirmed speakers.
