Global Perspective: NHS Scotland’s e-Health Strategy
The potential of information technology to support improved healthcare is recognized across the world. There are many approaches to delivering this potential; Scotland is building an approach that best fits the needs of NHS Scotland.
In Scotland, the e-Health Strategy is setting a course which focuses on improved healthcare more than technology. It also seeks to build on the significant progress we have already made to move to progressively stronger and more integrated support for the provision of care. The e-Health Strategy targets the key priorities set for health while also looking to build the wider vision of more integrated care and the use of information to promote better, more efficient and safer care for patients.
