This page outlines our work on technology and health, which is being carried out as one of our 2013-16 project strands for the Department of Health Strategic Partners programme.
New technologies and ways of accessing information offer the prospect of greater control for service users, as well as cost savings for health and care services. Our work will support the delivery of effective health and care through information technology and more efficient use of data through open data mechanisms. We will work with voluntary and community sector networks to ensure that the use of technology is accessible and equitable in its impact.
We have produced a briefing looking at the role of helplines in providing health support and information.
