The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges has published requirements that will ensure that clinical priorities for use of data and technology are met nationally.
Clare Marx, President of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, who led the SCRG which oversaw the work said:
We know we are a long way behind the curve when it comes to using information more effectively to improve care. We need to redouble our efforts, but it’s important too that clinicians have a say on what systems are introduced, how they work and what the benefits should be. This report does just that and should be closely read by those who are planning our healthcare systems for the next decade.
