ABHI ePROCUREMENT STRATEGY CONFERENCE: CONNECTING THE DOTS
Speaking from his West Suffolk constituency last month, Matt Hancock, the new Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, had a clear message: “tech transformation is coming”.
Announcing a £487m plan to digitalise hospitals, he cited the success of the Scan4Safety scheme as an example of the sort of programme the NHS should look to replicate, if it is to upgrade its systems and practices effectively. In this latest blog, I highlight that whilst the acknowledgment of technology’s capability is wholly welcome, the reality surrounding Scan4Safety is somewhat different.
This, and the latest updates on the requirements of the eProcurement strategy, will be addressed at our conference on 18th September to provide that all important clarity for companies.
With best regards.
