The Digital Maturity Assessment measures the extent to which healthcare services in England are supported by the effective use of digital technology. NHS England sent self assessment forms to all healthcare providers to identify key strengths and gaps in the provision of digital services at the point of care.
We are developing a new model (Digital Maturity Assessment Plus) with engagement and consultation with other networks and experts to identify good practice in measurement and assessment, including how to ensure the model supports an improvement agenda rather than performance monitoring.
The Informatics team has been working closing with the Oxford Academic Health Science Centre to design and develop an eHealth interoperability and advanced informatics proposal engaging all health and care partners. Importantly, this also includes the university sector, industry and the wider innovator community.
The proposed digital platform goes beyond the role of supporting local health economies to addressing the multiple agendas and local priorities around digital transformation across Oxfordshire including Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) and the successful Bicester Healthy New Town bid. This will support research and innovation within the University of Oxford, Oxford Brookes University and the Oxford NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC).
