Rethinking spend on the NHS

Brief précis of a report by a North American healthcare specialist on the use of tech in the future direction of the NHS. Not just a UK problem, demographics and healthcare advances are an issue facing governments across the globe. We have to tackle inefficiencies in the current approach and use technology to automate where we can in order to reallocate funds to where they are needed.

….innovation will “increasingly shift the balance of care in the NHS towards more centralised highly specialised care and decentralised less specialist care”……….Flatteringly, Topol also supports the ambition that the UK has the potential to become a world leader in such healthcare innovations.
