The eHealth team in the Scottish Government have announced the development of a new Digital Health and Care Strategy.
They have developed a new draft vision for the strategy:
As a citizen of Scotland:
I have access to the digital information, tools and services I need to help maintain and improve my health and wellbeing.
I expect my health and social care information to be captured electronically, integrated and shared securely, to assist service staff and carers that need to see it.
And that digital technology and data will be used appropriately and innovatively to help plan and improve services, enable research and economic development .
They are inviting comments and feedback, and want to know about people’s experiences of digital health and social care. Whether you are health care or social care professional, a sector manager or planner, a systems developer, or a patient or carer, they would welcome your views.
You can find more details including how to make comments and share your experiences on the Scottish Government website here.
