We provide IT solutions to the healthcare sector to collaborate with other physicians and experts in new ways and use computers to analyze patient and medical data, allowing them to provide better and more efficient treatment for their patients. As technology continues to expand the horizons of medicine and medical interaction, it is becoming clear that we are entering a new era of health care. These solutions promise a transformation of our health service, putting patients at the centre and in control of their own health and healthcare, while services will deliver what is needed and with the lightest touch, to maintain good health for individuals and for the population as a whole. IT is not optional but must be at the heart of this transformation process.
It offers access to information, systems to protect patients from harm, opportunities for better governance, better integration of services and remote contact with patients to facilitate co-production processes and patient partnerships.
