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 NHS Digital Academy, is delivering a 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.

As part of the programme, the HFMA is publishing a series of case studies. Working with organisations who have started on the digital transformation journey, we will identify examples of good practice and highlight the challenges that services face. This will include specific challenges relating to NHS finance.

This case study describes how the Dorset Intelligence and Insight Service has been set up to enable people working across the health and social care network to access digital tools. These provide clinicians and planners with access to a range of patient data to assist in delivering services that can improve health outcomes for the county’s population.
