How can we improve skills and education in using new technology?

In ten years’ time, we expect the existing model of care to look markedly different. The NHS will offer a ‘digital first’ option for most, allowing for longer and richer face-to-face consultations with clinicians where patients want or need it.

Clinicians will be supported by digital tools, and when ill, people will be increasingly cared for in their own home, with the option for their physiology to be effortlessly monitored by wearable devices.

We must support the workforce to develop the digital and data skills they will need to make effective use of new tools.

Professor Eric Topol is leading work to consider what education and training changes may be needed to maximise the opportunities of technology, artificial intelligence and genomics in the NHS.

While his conclusions will inform our workforce implementation plan, we want to hear from staff about how you think we can support the workforce to make the most of new technology.

 

1. What skills do we need to develop in staff to better use technology and data to improve patient care and free up their time?

2. How can we recruit and retain staff with excellent technological skills?

3. What areas of healthcare are the best opportunities to join up through use of data and technology?

I would talk to the big bosses at Microsoft and such and one and for always get a system in place that aids the making of appointments and scheduling just like the other organisations do.  All you need behind the system is accurate pathways and the ability to review and override where necessary.  So much time saved, so much money and resource saved to be put to better use.  So much less reworking.  Capacity and demand would be counted accurately.  Target data will be right first time without...

I attended a hugely inspiring event yesterday by Witty Careers, a network set up to equip women of colour in the UK with the skills to develop a successful career in tech. The women who spoke were dynamic, resilient, had had numerous setbacks and rejections but overcame these to succeed in tech and were giving back to communities at the same time - precisely the people we need in the NHS.  None of them had considered the NHS as a career option. Reasons cited included : The NHS is not...

1. Modernise the underlying technology:Mostly everyone carries a smart phone and knows how to use it these days. Mostly everyone can use a tablet. Most people that come to work in the NHS can use a computer. However, in many NHS organisations, our underlying infrastructure and technology hasn't moved with the times. Voice conferencing solutions to work in teams doesn't exist. Phoning a hospital still connects us to a switchboard that can't get through to wards and teams. Networks are still...

The "edges" between care settings are where patient information and data gets lost and the patient feels lost. Between Primary and Acute, between Acute and Community, between Primary and Community, between Community and Social Care, between Primary and Mental Health etc. Review the patient journeys at the edges and focus on providing localised solutions. The centre should have funding that STPs can bid for to join up the "edges"

There is no professional advancement in the NHS as a whole for technologists. Lots of talk of creating leaders and bringing top people in from the private sector, not growing from within. Create a new category of staff for technologists rather than clubbing within an A&C category.

I currently work within a team which consists of very techy people - developers and coders and so on. It is really easy to feel lost during techy discussions; I want to continue working for our beloved NHS but I am also conscious that to bring technology into everyday work situations we need to bring along the existing  staff and nurture their tech skills and understanding as they are invaluable to the workplace having put in many years of work.
