The Mid and South Essex Integrated Care System (ICS) has developed a Digital Investment Plan to transform health and care services in the region. The plan builds on the approved Digital Strategy and Data/Business Intelligence (BI) Strategy and focuses on the delivery of core digital capabilities across the ICS. This plan was approved by the ICB Board in October 2022, and can be found from page 48 in the ICB Board Meeting 13 October 2022 papers.
The plan prioritises investments that will make a difference to the collective health and care provision of organisation within the ICS, improve the commonality of solutions, and drive up digital maturity in line with ‘What Good Looks Like’. The key strategic priorities of the plan include the Shared Care Record, Strategic Data Platform, and Digital Patient Interface. The plan also includes a set of supporting activities such as creating a system-wide approach to Information Governance (IG) and convergence of Electronic Patient Record Systems (EPR) across the provider landscape.
