HL7 UK invited you to a free webinar on 16th of July, where speakers from HL7, IHE, BCS and NHS briefed us on standards relating to the new Technology Fund initiative 

Standards for the delivery of patient-centered care in the Safer Hospitals, Safer Wards initiative

Healthcare information standards are essential for the delivery of joined-up patient information and joined-up patient care, in the DoH Information Strategy and in the NHS ‘Safer Hospitals, Safer Wards’ Technology Fund. The establishment of Integrated Digital Care Records (IDCR) across all care settings is a firm expectation by 2018 according to the Secretary of State for Health.

This free webinar provided vital orientation for managers, clinicians and IT staff wishing to participate in these initiatives, who need to understand:

    • Why standards – their role in better patient care

    • How standards should be applied in the NHS ‘Safer Hospitals, Safer Wards’ Technology Fund

    • Which standards to use for exchange and storage of clinical documents

    • Which standards to use for mobile health devices and applications

    • Practical experience in the deployment of standards
