Digital Transformation

We currently have too many separate and unconnected IT systems across health and social care in Coventry and Warwickshire. This leads to fragmented care for service users and discourages integration between care providers.

We are working together to ensure there is better digital integration between health and social care organisations so professionals are able to access the clinical information they need to inform the care they deliver. This will help reduce duplication and inefficiencies in our health care system, and most importantly lead to a better experience for patients in Coventry and Warwickshire.


What do we want to do?

  • Reduce the time health and social care professionals spend collecting and duplicating data
  • Improve quality of care and patient experience through personalised care
  • Enable integrated working between hospitals, GP practices, community health and social care
  • Improve efficiencies through sharing of information and better communications between care providers



What have we done so far?

We are working closely together to review existing systems and identify opportunities where we can begin work on integrated systems.

A workshop has also been held with all partner organisations to refresh their plan, sometimes called a Local Digital Roadmap, and to agree objectives in terms of digital solutions over the next two years.
