B:3 The Digital Health and Care Strategy for Scotland – Building on our Achievements. Planning for our Future

Session Summary

Digital technology has a key role to play in helping to transform services, and to ensure person-centred care is provided in a way that fits with people’s lives, particularly in an increasingly digital age. The new Digital Health and Care Strategy for Scotland will build on achievements to date but will provide greater alignment between the strong foundations in e-health, technology-enabled care and the use of data, intelligence and research.

In this session, delegates explored the priorities of the Digital Health and Care Strategy for Scotland, as well as the developments and technologies that will reshape services for the future.  

A series of short presentations showcased real-life examples of how digital has enabled services to be reshaped and improved, as well as perspectives on how the new approach offers improved working, improved outcomes and improved service user experience.
