Delivering value with digital technologies

Helping NHS finance staff support the transformation of care through digital technologies.

Digital technologies such as digital medicine, genomics, artificial intelligence and robotics have a huge potential to transform the delivery of healthcare. These technologies can empower patients to participate actively in their care, with a greater focus on wellbeing and prevention. They also support the prediction of individual disease risk and personalise the management of long-term conditions.

The HFMA's programme of work started in 2021, aiming to increase awareness amongst NHS finance staff about digital healthcare technologies, so that finance staff can take an active role in supporting the use of digital technology to transform services and drive value and efficiency.

The HFMA’s Digital Council oversees this work programme. The HFMA and NHS Digital Academy are working in partnership to provide a range of resources and tools that can raise the profile of this area of work to drive across patient services.

The programme includes briefings, roundtables, the Delivering Value with Digital Technologies Award, case studies, blogs, events, webinars, HFMA bitesize modules and much more. Read on to find out more. 

Digital technologies resources map

This map is a tool that supports good practice in delivering value with digital technology. Primarily aimed at finance teams who are supporting developments in their organisations, the map will also help clinical and informatics teams who want to understand how to make the case for digital investment.

Digital network

To help finance professionals engage with their clinical and information technology colleagues, we are establishing a digital network open to anyone with an interest in the digital agenda. The network will be kept informed of the work that we are doing in relation to digital, but will also be invited to networking calls.

The networking calls will be held monthly to allow staff to raise issues and highlight good practice. Initially, we do not intend to have an agenda or minutes for these calls as they will be a discussion forum. However, we will keep that under review.
