Helping NHS finance 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, supported by Health Education England, is delivering a 12-month programme of work to increase awareness amongst NHS finance staff about digital healthcare technologies, and enable finance to take an active role in supporting the use of digital technology to transform services and drive value and efficiency. 

The programme will include briefings, roundtables, the Delivering Value with Digital Technologies Award, case studies, blogs, events, webinars, HFMA bitesize modules and much more. Below you'll find all the work that has been produced so far.
