Our health and care services are facing unprecedented demands, pressurised budgets and complex organisational change. Only by exploiting technology and securely sharing information can they meet these challenges while delivering person centred care. BCS has a role to play in making this happen for the benefit of society.
'BCS and the use of IT going forwards will be integral into giving us a 21st century healthcare system that we can afford.'
Jo Churchill, MP Bury St Edmunds
BCS was at this year’s Labour and Conservative party conference. BCS along with Prospect magazine assembled a panel to discuss the issue 'How can data save lives?'
We will be continuing the discussion at the next IT Impact Health and Care event, to be held early in 2017 (date and venue to be confirmed).
