Without digital leaders in senior positions there is a danger that digital strategies won’t truly address the requirements of digital transformation – it is about so much more than the technology, its also about the culture, processes, target operating models and opportunities for service improvement. Visionary digital leaders need to drive the agenda. Trust Boards need to support the digital transformation agenda, as difficult as that may be with competing priorities.
It goes without saying that there’s work still to do to have a truly digital NHS aligned to the NHS Long Term plan. That said, looking back at the International year of the Nurse and Midwife 2020, it’s really fantastic to reflect upon the progress that has been made, particularly at a time when we have faced our biggest health crisis in decades.
In 2020, nurses, midwives and other health care professionals have really embraced digital transformation with incredible resilience and determination. They’ve implemented changes that previously would have taken years, all for the benefit of their patients. There’s no turning back. Digital transformation is the only way to go.
