Over 400 staff from all five of the Health and Social Care Trusts in Northern Ireland and patients attended three regional workshops organised by the encompass Programme to help shape future digital care.
There was a high level of engagement from those who took part, giving valuable input from their experience and expertise across a range of disciplines, grades and care settings.
The Programme is a Northern Ireland-wide initiative that will support transformation and introduce new digital technology to our Health and Social Care Services. This will mean that everyone involved in care will have secure, consistent access to the right information at the right time in the right place to better inform safer care.
The workshops focused on the development of a series of patient-centred scenarios that will support the evaluation and selection of the encompass solution.
Attendees were also given the opportunity to hear about the Programme’s vision, current status and how they can stay involved.
