Digital NHS trust or health board of the year
Every NHS trust and health board is on its own 'digital journey', using technology to improve communications, provide a better patient experience, reduce costs, speed up services, mitigate risk and make a host of other improvements. Who has journeyed the furthest? This category will seek out the excellent trusts and boards that are showing the way.
Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust
Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust has a long history of IT innovation. In 2011, it implemented the Cerner Millennium electronic patient record, and in 2013 it added e-prescribing. It has used these two systems as a platform for further developments that have delivered safety improvements alongside efficiencies and cash releasing benefits. The board supports the work as a core enabler of strategic change.
