Peter Oliver talks about differentiating between short-term and long-term technologies during Covid19 in this latest feature by Health Tech News that asks if healthcare has had it’s online banking moment in their latest feature.

"There’s no question that we have seen a significant acceleration in digital adoption across Health and Care; and particularly within the NHS.

"Some technologies have proven themselves to be transformative incredibly quickly and will be here to stay; some have provided tactical solutions, and will require further consideration for them to remain for the long term – and some just won’t have been effective, and will need to be decommissioned, safely.

"However, aside from us being forced in to a position of requiring these tools with immediacy, one change that has enabled this rapid adoption has been a relaxation in approaches to procurement.

"We absolutely need to make sure that public money is invested wisely, both in terms of delivering value for money and benefits; but there could be an opportunity for procurement reform.

"The challenge ahead of us is to ensure we have the mechanism to deliver rapid evaluation, sourcing and contracting of new technology, and related services."
