Why digitalisation is important to the healthcare industry

In the healthcare industry, digitalisation is incredibly important as it can improve efficiency and the overall running of the healthcare system.

From retail to healthcare, people expect more from their experience as both a customer and a patient due to modern technological advancements. In the healthcare industry, digitalisation is incredibly important as it can improve efficiency and the overall running of the healthcare system.

By investing in digitalisation in the UK, the healthcare industry can improve across many areas and promote digital workplaces for employees, enabling them to grow in their careers by familiarising themselves with topics and trends important in their fields.

Digital transformation not only improves opportunities and learning for employees, but can also improve the patient experience, as information can be safely shared seamlessly, providing a more personal approach to each individual.

The benefits of digitalisation in the healthcare industry

Efficient scheduling

The NHS records around one in 10 hospital appointments as 'did not attend' every year in England alone. This costs more than an estimated £1bn, which could be reduced through digital methods. For example, a simple text exchange with a reminder that gives the patient the option to confirm or cancel.

Improved communication amongst staff

Professionals can communicate in real-time effectively and efficiently.

Improved security

With important patient information and data stored digitally, security needs to be consistently monitored and maintained to prevent any threats.

Patient access

Providing patients with access to their own records so they better understand their own conditions and/or procedures will personalise their experience and allow them to self-serve if they wish.
