With £b being invested in technology and multiple reports showing the expectation of technologies capabilities, we should take this opportunity to ask the right questions at the start of any technology investment.
Just because technology can do something, is that the answer? Have we thought through ‘what and how’ the technology would be used in the wider clinical setting?
Tony Corkett, founder director Cloud21, NHS NIA, HIMMS Cyber chair, former radiographer turned CIO, who’s worked internationally and with many trusts over the years on digital transformation, started a doctoral research study in 2017. The thesis he is currently researching and writing up seeks to investigate the relationship between technology and asking the ‘so what?’ question in the quest to understand how technology can reach it’s potential and deliver value.
Tony was invited to the All4Health&Care Technology Leaders Forum recently to share his findings and discuss with the digital health community.
