Scottish Government Calls for Information and Feedback on Digital Health Strategy

The Scottish Government is currently calling on people to give opinions and feedback on their approach to eHealth, and how they can create effective eHealth strategies in the future. This is undoubtedly in response to the growing recognition of the importance of eHealth development and its ability to impact the wellbeing of future generations.

They are hoping to hear responses to the following questions:

  1. What do you consider have been the main successes of the existing Scottish Government’s eHealth and telecare/telehealth strategies and why?
  2. What do you consider have been the main failures of the existing Scottish Government’s eHealth and telecare/telehealth strategies and why?
  3. How well does the Scottish Government’s draft Digital Health and Social Care Vision 2017-2022 address the future requirements of the NHS and social care sector?
  4. Do you think there are any significant omissions in the Scottish Government’s draft Digital Health and Social Care vision 2017-2022
  5. What key opportunities exist for the use of technology in health and social care over the next 10 years?
  6. What actions are needed to improve the accessibility and sharing of the electronic patient record?
  7. What are the barriers to innovation in health and social care?

The deadline for written submissions is Wednesday 12 July 2017. The Committee have asked that submissions be reasonably brief – no more than 4-6 sides in Word format – and be submitted electronically to healthandsport@parliament.scot .

The Scottish Government is aiming to find out whether their draft vision on Digital Health and social care sufficiently addresses the future requirements of the NHS and social care sector in Scotland. Digital Health is one of the fastest growing sectors in tech and IT at the moment, a fact backed up by Company Connecting data which is the unrivalled authority on Scottish IT and tech. Tomorrow, Company Connecting will be using its data to publish a Digital Health Skills Infographic in keeping with the Government’s call for information. This will show a detailed representation of the industry in Scotland, which is clearly heavily sought-after at the moment.
