The National Information Board’s Personalised Health and Care 2020 framework, which was published in November / December 2014, presents plans to transform health care and improve services by use of information / digital technology.
The aim is to harness transformational technology to work better for patients by 2020, with improvements in online access to GP records, allowing continuous coordinated care more centered around individual patients. Patients and citizens will be given greater control over their health and wellbeing, and carers will be empowered increasingly.
