NHS Scotland eHealth Strategy 2008 - 2011 Launched

NHS Scotland eHealth Strategy 2008 - 2011The eHealth Strategy for 2008 - 2011 was formally launched by Nicola Sturgeon at this year's NHS Scotland Event. The vision for eHealth supports the goals as set out in the Better Health Better Care Action Plan. This is about exploiting the power of electronic information to help ensure that patients get the right care, involving the right clinicians, at the right time, to deliver the right outcomes. It is therefore as much about transforming traditional processes as it is about technology.

Ms Sturgeon said, "Building for the future means an investment in new technology. Our eHealth Strategy demonstrates how we intend to harness the opportunities of new technology to enhance patient care. Over the next three years this will allow us to build the platform for an electronic patient record that will support the patient and improve their experience of care throughout their healthcare journey."
