Covid-19 has shown us that people are increasingly using digital tools to access a services, including those for health and social care. They also want and expect to have greater choice over how – and increasingly when – they access care and support. Over the last year we have also learned a great deal about effective collaboration and delivering at pace using agile approaches. Our accelerated progress has led to a greater understanding of the opportunities that digital can provide. We are therefore working on a refresh of the Digital Health & Care Strategy, first published in 2018 to reflect the developments in innovation and partnership working that Covid-19 has brought about.
How can the principles of the original strategy (empowering citizens to better manage their health and wellbeing, and the underpinning architectural and information governance building blocks, and workforce skills development to enable this) be embedded in the way our health and social care systems work? Whatever the answer, providers of residential care, nursing care, day care, care at home and housing support services have an important part to play and we are keen to hear your views.
This is an opportunity for Scottish Care members to engage with the Directorate for Digital Health and Care on these areas and to hear more about the strategy refresh.
