NHS England sets out IT requirements for personalised care

NHS England is inviting tech companies to set out how they meet a number of requirements to improve personalisation in healthcare through IT.

The request follows the publication of NHS England’s IT requirements for personalised care, which outlines he requirements of IT solutions that could support the rollout of NHS England’s personalisation agenda.

It seeks responses from suppliers who can support the national Integrated Personal Commissioning programme – a joint initiative between NHS England and the Local Government Association.

The paper also focuses on the role of Personal Health Budgets (PHBs). Every Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in England has a legal duty to offer PHBs and the Government has set an expectation that at least 50,000-100,000 people will have a PHB by 2021.

The work is intended to help local CCGs assess the most appropriate IT solutions for their area.

Suppliers are invited to respond by Friday 7 April 2017 and more information on how to respond can be found on the NHS England website.
