They have been set out in the STP (sustainability and transformation partnership) NHS Five Year Forward View to cover a “triple challenge”
As life expectancy increases, there are now more people with chronic diseases. There are also big opportunities to improve care by making common-sense changes to how the NHS works.
Common-sense means improvements such as – making it easier to see a GP, speeding up cancer diagnosis and offering help faster to people with mental ill health.
This is why the NHS and local councils have come together in 44 areas covering all of England to develop proposals for health and care, they are NHS England’s STPs (Sustainability and Transformation Plans).
Each area has produced a sustainability and transformation plan for the next few years. Even if local, the NHS England’s STPs plans layout similar cases for change, focusing on health inequalities, unequal access to treatment and over-reliance on hospital care.
All of the STP NHS include digital sections with identified objectives
Support population health management, risk stratification and service change.
Shared care records
Support integrated care working
Increase public access
Improve access such as appointment booking and ‘channel shift’
Ultimately they identified the need for an “interoperability framework” to “make information more widely available and accessible”. More than ever, we believe that our interoperability expertise and solutions are one of the keys to success for NHS STPs.
