Digital medical IT and healthcare improvement

How can digital medical information technologies be successfully introduced to enable effective health care improvement?

This review looks at how digital medical information technologies across primary, community, acute, physical/mental and social care settings can be successfully introduced to enable effective healthcare improvement for professionals and patients. Behaviour change was included within the context of the research.

We found that the evidence base for digital medical information is still relatively new as this is an emerging field. Many digital projects are still in their infancy without investment into evaluation and this subject has therefore not been as robustly recorded as other areas of research. However one key example has been provided as an appendix deep dive: The London NHS 111 Patient Relationship Manager.

The review also identified one system-wide study followed by six case studies from the UK and internationally that are relevant and informative.
