Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership launch 'Digital Revolution' strategy

Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership have launched their digital strategy, Digit@LL.

Launched officially on 5th July, the NHS's 70th birthday, the strategy offers a roadmap for Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership over the next five years.

Louise Shepherd, Senior Responsible Officer for the Digital Revolution Programme said:

Cheshire and Merseyside is already one of the best places in the country for the way patient care is improved by using technology. But with Digit@LL, they want to go even further. 

The ambitions for the digital programme are to: 

  • Enable people to use digital technologies to manage their own care
  • Ensure information is available to the right people, in the right place, at the right time
  • Ensure that health and social care share relevant information with each other
  • Use existing and future technologies
  • Support the workforce to use technology to improve services
  • Use the data and intelligence available to make our services better

 As a result, patients will see the following benefits:

  • You won’t need to repeat your story to different organisations involved in your care
  • The care you receive will be more efficient and better quality
  • Improvements in clinical outcomes 
  • Improvements in how you monitor your own health 
  • Better digital connections with health and care providers

We are in a unique position with four Global Digital Exemplars in Cheshire and Merseyside including the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen Hospitals NHS Trust. The team at Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership work closely with all four to ensure they share learning and best practice and support innovation and connectivity across our health and care services.
