NHS Scotland - The Scottish Parliamentary Committee seeks views on eHealth
The Scottish Parliament's Health and Sport Committee is seeking candid views on eHealth from a broad range of stakeholders, including citizens and practitioners.
The Committee is inviting views on the Scottish Government’s approach to eHealth, including the successes and failures of the existing telecare and telehealth strategies.
In particular, the Committee wishes to explore the opportunities future developments might present, as well as barriers to innovation in the NHS.
With reference to the Scottish Government’s draft vision on digital health and social care, the Committee is seeking evidence-based feedback on whether the current vision
adequately addresses the future requirements of the NHS and social care sector in Scotland.
More specifically, "will it empower and enable innovation and the transformations that will be needed to keep pace with technological developments?"
The Committee are keen to hear responses to the following key questions:
- What do you consider have been the main successes of the existing Scottish Government’s eHealth and telecare/telehealth strategies and why?
- What do you consider have been the main failures of the existing Scottish Government’s eHealth and telecare/telehealth strategies and why?
- How well does the Scottish Government’s
draft Digital Health and Social Care Vision 2017-2022
address the future requirements of the NHS and social care sector?
- Do you think there are any significant omissions in the Scottish Government’s draft Digital Health and Social Care vision 2017-2022?
- What key opportunities exist for the use of technology in health and social care over the next 10 years?
- What actions are needed to improve the accessibility and sharing of the electronic patient record?
- What are the barriers to innovation in health and social care?
