Digital transformation in the NHS

How, where and when patient care is given is changing. There is a natural evolution towards smart healthcare services, where technology is embedded across clinical pathways and the digital patient is the new normal. It is vital that our NHS health services, staff and patients are ready for this. Because ultimately, smarter healthcare means better quality, more efficient and safer patient care.

At CCS, our technology experts are here to help you embrace your trust’s digital transformation journey, and develop a robust technology procurement strategy.

We’ve put together a step-by-step guide to buying digital transformation solutions in the NHS. We explore the 3 main phases, with a clear breakdown of the programme stages and projects you will go through along the way.
