Workstream for the Long Term Plan

How can we improve skills and education in using new technology?

In ten years’ time, we expect the existing model of care to look markedly different. The NHS will offer a ‘digital first’ option for most, allowing for longer and richer face-to-face consultations with clinicians where patients want or need it.

Clinicians will be supported by digital tools, and when ill, people will be increasingly cared for in their own home, with the option for their physiology to be effortlessly monitored by wearable devices.

We must support the workforce to develop the digital and data skills they will need to make effective use of new tools.

Professor Eric Topol is leading work to consider what education and training changes may be needed to maximise the opportunities of technology, artificial intelligence and genomics in the NHS.

While his conclusions will inform our workforce implementation plan, we want to hear from staff about how you think we can support the workforce to make the most of new technology.

 

1. What skills do we need to develop in staff to better use technology and data to improve patient care and free up their time?

2. How can we recruit and retain staff with excellent technological skills?

3. What areas of healthcare are the best opportunities to join up through use of data and technology?

Develop an app where staff rosters are posted, leave can be requested and authorised, reminders set. Ensure that the app can interface directly into ESR or relevant payroll software so that people are not booking leave on one system and then filling out a timesheet on a different system

There is a brilliant opportunity to use our Millianials and therefore future workforce to develop more app based approached to working with Digital. Our local college were an instamental part of writing our digital strategy. They will be the future workforce and were keen to help with App based technology to help prepare people for working in a digital NHS. They would be perfect (as would people from the older generation) to help make our digital education easy to understand and use for...

The Topol Review reads very much like a blueprint for tertiary specialist pointy-headed departments of genomics and robotics, whilst there is massive potential to use data and technology as an enabler of patient and clinician-led change. By clinicians I mean community and primary care based teams - for example, Community Nurses, who spend up to 50% of their time on patients with chronic wounds and /or leg ulcers. This costs the NHS millions of pounds a year, but most service providers...

We have recently founded the Shuri Network (named after the Black Panther character) for women of colour in NHS health informatics and technology with support from NHS England and Health Education England.  20-50% of our nursing workforce, 40 %of hospital Drs and 28% of GPs are from a BAME background and yet <5 Chief Information Officers or Chief Clinical Information Officers are women of colour. BAME women are very often the ones using software and technology on the NHS frontline to...
