POLICIES The UK has recognised and is actively responding to the shift towards digital health and care Participation – supporting patients and the public to take more control of their health and care. NHS Mandate “By March 2015, everyone who wants it will be able to get online access to their GP record, as well as book appointments with their GP and order repeat prescriptions online.” Transparency – the safe sharing of data and information between clinicians and with patients “ “ DIGITAL CHALLENGE England’s Secretary of State for Health has set a digital challenge to the NHS to become paperless by 2018, making it the most modern digital health and care service in the world England’s ‘Making sure health and social care services work together’ policy sets out a shared vision for integrated care and support to become the norm in the next five years. Person-centred coordinated care and support is identified as critical to improving outcomes for individuals who use health and social care services. The Scottish government’s 2020 vision highlights patient-centred care, with care being provided to the highest standards at home or in the community enabled through technology. UK policies on digital health and care Northern Ireland operates a Connected Health Ecosystem and is developing a region wide eHealth and care strategy to provide an overarching strategy for addressing all aspects of eHealth and care. The Welsh Government recognises the growing evidence and move towards integrating health and social care services with a specific commitment in Sustainable Social Services. The Digital Wales policy launched in January 2014 maps out a brighter digital future for wales including delivering digital skills, improved online public services, better infrastructure and enhanced mobile coverage.
REGULATION Self-regulation – Trade associations like the ABHI, ABPI and the TSA have codes of practice available to both members and non-members First of its kind worldwide, the TSA Integrated Code of Practice is a national quality framework which providers of telehealth and telecare services can be accredited. The code has been written to respond to the challenges of an evolving health and social care system, and in support of national frameworks and priorities. ABHI sees ethical compliance as a key subject for the medical technology industry, particularly as a means to safeguard the important relationships that companies have with healthcare professionals with whom they work closely in developing and improving medical devices. For many companies this is a new area and ABHI is keen to provide a structure for companies to work towards the highest standards of behaviour both as organisations and by their staff. The Prescription Medicines Code of Practice Authority (PMCPA) is responsible for administering the ABPI Code of Practice for the pharmaceutical industry at arm's length of the ABPI itself. The code regulates the advertising of medicines for prescription to health professionals and administrative staff. It also covers information about prescription only medicines made available to the general public.
STANDARDS The Information Standard is a certification programme, supported by NHS England, for any organisation producing evidence-based health and/or care information for the public. This programme enables people to quickly identify reliable sources of high quality, evidence-based information through the use of an easily recognised quality mark. This helps people to make more informed healthcare decisions for themselves and their families.Organisations who join the programme are making a clear commitment to improving the experience of their patients and users by providing high quality, evidence-based information by default.It is also possible to join The Information Standard either as individual department or as a whole organisation, and the process is simpler and more straightforward than ever before. INFORMATION Roadmap of ITU E-health standardisation – ITU-approved H.800-H.899 standard for E-health multimedia services and applications Recommendation ITU-T H.810 defines the Continua Design Guidelines (CDG) which contains specifications to ensure the interoperability of devices used for applications monitoring personal health. It also contains additional design guidelines for interoperability that further clarifies these specifications by reducing the options in the underlying standard or specification, or by adding a feature missing in the underlying standard or specification. These guidelines focus on the following interfaces: TAN-IF, PAN-IF, LAN-IF, WAN-IF and HRN-IF INTEROPERABILITY NHS England and the Health and Social Care Information Centre signed a healthcare IT memorandum of understanding with the US Department for Health and Social Services focusing on sharing common values around healthcare informatics improving access for small and medium-sized enterprises and identifying alignments across existing UK and US repositories
MOVING TOWARDS AN INTEGRATED HEALTH AND CARE SYSTEM The UK government has made strong commitments to move to a fully integrated health and care system enabled through technology. The vision for the Department of Health is an information revolution where people have access to the right information they need. The UK is currently the largest EU spender for telehealth Scotland’sNational Telehealth and Telecare Delivery Plan to 2015,sets out the vision and direction for how the use of technology will be integrated into service development and delivery. Significant milestones include a world’s first national telehealth strategy in 2010 and developments in the technology infrastructure, education and training till 2015. A single integrated Scottish Centre for Telehealth and Telecare (SCTT) embedded within NHS 24 (NHS 24 provides comprehensive health information and self care advice to the people of Scotland) and a National Telehealth and Telecare Advisory Board (NTTAB) will inform and drive the strategic direction on telehealth and telecare. Northern Ireland is unique within the UK in that health and social services are already integrated, so providing a unified patient engagement approach. It already has a single Electronic Care Record for every patientwhich pulls together key details about patient care from existing systems and makes them available to authorized staff wherever the patient is located, ensuring that their information is available, as needed, by those looking after them. The European Commission has awarded Northern Ireland 3 star Reference Site status as part of its European Innovative Partnership on Active and Healthy Aging. Northern Ireland is now seen independently, as a forerunner in Europe in bringing about a higher quality of health and social care for the older population. In 2011 a review of the provision of health and social care services within Northern Ireland was undertaken under the banner of ‘Transforming Your Care’ digital health provision was identified as a key strand moving forward. Wales already has integrated service projects underway that place the citizen at the core of service design, planning and delivery. Examples of these projects include: Gwent Frailty Project funded by Invest-to-Save bid, Wrexham Frailty Project funded by the Strategic Continuing Health Care resources and the Wyn Campaign also funded by the Invest-to-Save bid.
MOVING TOWARDS AN INTEGRATED HEALTH AND CARE SYSTEM • Several national programmes across the UK aim to address the challenge of integrating health and social care through telehealth and telecare. Some programmes include: DALLAS (Delivering Assisted Living Lifestyles At Scale) £37.3 million investment is being made in the UK-wide DALLAS programme. DALLAS is establishing communities totalling 169,000 people by June 2015 across the UK. These communities will show how independent living technologies, services and systems can be used to promote wellbeing, and provide integrated top quality health and care, enabling people to live independently. ALIP (Assisted Living Innovation Platform), is a project delivering a wide ranging programme to enable the ageing population and those with long-term health conditions to live with greater independence. The3 million lives programme, now referred to as Technology Enabled Care Services under the new leadership of NHS England has created 4 Rapid Design Groups around the following topic areas: Improving information governance, Developing commissioning skills and capability, Improving procurement levers and frameworks and Developing measurements and metrics. NHS England is looking to match the 14 Integrated Care Pioneers to companies providing technology enabled services to support these Pioneer sites in their ambitions
