Becoming an HIT leader in the UK

Adrian Byrne, director of IM&T at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation, shares his thoughts on the organization’s recent Global Digital Exemplar designation.



Video Transcription:

We were selected to be a part of the global digital exemplar program by NHS England colleagues. The reason for that program is that there was a review done by a chap called Bob back in San Francisco. He pointed out that the NHS really doesn't have any exemplar secondary care organisations and we should create something and we have a reasonably high digital maturity score.


We're quite good at integration and we became of interest to that program and we filled out an expression of interest of being involved in it and, ultimately, following a process of due diligence were selected to be to be involved in that.
