The Digital Maturity Index is about measuring use of information technology (IT) to improve patient safety and outcomes, reduce bureaucracy and achieve greater efficiencies in the NHS.
The Digital Maturity Assessment Programme involves assessing (i) effectiveness in the use of technology regarding digital care records, transfers of care and medicines management, and (ii) developing a framework for use across acute, mental health, community, ambulance and social care settings.
The digital maturity index will help local clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) to assess progress towards eradicating the use of paper in the treatment of patients across all health and care services by 2020, and to allocate resources effectively.
