DigitalHealth.London, which supports the adoption of digital solutions across the health and care system, is reflecting on the impact its programmes have had over the last five years.

To celebrate its fifth birthday, DigitalHealth.London has published Driving digital: Insights and foresights from the health and care ecosystem following a five-week conversation with NHS and social care staff, industry, patients and academics.

Topics in the publication include NHS digital health adoption, tackling digital exclusion, the importance of co-design, challenges of health tech evaluation, AI for workforce support, growth of remote monitoring and international opportunities.

Dr Timothy Ferris, director of transformation at NHS England and Improvement, said: “DigitalHealth.London has brought together voices from across health and social care, staff, patients and service users, industry and academics, to reflect on learnings from the last five years and the future of healthcare.

“This publication provides invaluable insights for how we can work together towards the goal of improving people’s care. I would encourage leaders, clinicians and decision makers in health and care to read, share and take action.”

The free-to-access publication features interviews with NHS and social care staff, digital health companies, patients and academics.

Topics in the publication include NHS digital health adoption, tackling digital exclusion, the importance of co-design, challenges of health tech evaluation, AI for workforce support, growth of remote monitoring and international opportunities.

Sonia Patel, chief information officer at NHSX, said: “The digital health landscape has changed dramatically over the last five years, and it is clear from the insights shared in DigitalHealth.London’s 5th birthday publication, that as a sector we’ve learnt an incredible amount.

“As a Londoner, I’m particularly pleased to see progress in tech and data to support a multicultural, diverse community. It is also apparent that, while we’ve still got a way to go, the future is bright for digital health in London and beyond. If you’re working in digital health, this is a must read.”

Jenny Thomas, programme director at DigitalHealth.London, said: “We are proud of what DigitalHealth.London has achieved over the last five years in supporting the growth of digital health innovation in London and of how much we have learnt.

“But we know that there is still more to be done. That is why we wanted to celebrate our 5th birthday by starting an open discussion with groups from across the healthcare sector.

“Thank you to everyone who took part in what was an enlightening conversation, and we hope that those reading these insights gain as much from it as we did.”
