One more way in which the NHS can use technology to achieve greater efficiency
We read about it all the time. More resources are needed since the NHS must treat more older people, deal with an increase in long-term conditions, embrace increasingly more sophisticated and advanced methods treatments. In addition, it has now had to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. Resources are strained, budgets are under pressure and it must achieve more, with less.
One thing we tend not to think about is the issue of using medical devices more efficiently and more safely. Each year, millions of pounds is spent on a variety of equipment ranging from basic walking aids through to highly sophisticated medical devices. In this white paper, we assess how we can ensure the NHS can make the most of this investment, save valuable funds that can be put to even better use and improve patient safety.
