Mark Leaning PhD launched an independent white paper at the EMIS Health Customer Conference, February 2016. Having researched the issues faced by a cross-sector of people directly affected by healthcare - from a patient advocate to an A&E consultant to a product design specialist - Mark presents his findings and a series of conclusions about what we can do now, to make a big difference in five years’ time.
Transforming healthcare by 2021
“Patient care is still fragmented and major change is needed – underpinned by radical new ways of working if the NHS is to survive its daunting budget deficit and £20 billion efficiency savings target. In my view, it is time for the healthcare IT industry to step up and become an agent for change, a partner with clinicians and citizens in re-engineering health and healthcare. Smart technology can revolutionise healthcare – it’s time to unleash that potential.”
