Information Technology (IT) is the backbone of the NHS. Without it, our current NHS just could not function.
IT has helped healthcare professionals track patient's records easily and securely. A medical professional can add pharmacy records, X-rays, test results, and even vital signs to the virtual chart that is easy to read, share, and check against other records.
Lifelong electronic health records for every person in the country. Round-the-clock online access to patient records and information about best clinical practice for all NHS clinicians. Genuine seamless care for patients through GPs, hospitals and community services sharing information across the internet. The government invests £4.7 billion of national funding in delivering some national digital services and improving the digital maturity of some NHS trusts.
