George Freeman calls for faster adoption of digital health technologies for better diagnosis, prevention, care, research and as a platform for place-based health impact bonds

Patient Experience: Digital Technology

7. What steps he is taking to improve the patient experience through the use of digital technology. [910719]

Providing patients with modern digital services that are safe, effective, convenient and personalised is central to our NHS long-term plan.

I thank the Secretary of State for that answer and for the energy that he brings to this brief. Does he agree that digital health not only improves healthcare systems but also provides a platform for place-based and population-based prevention, better diagnosis, patient empowerment, novel mental health therapies and accelerated access to the innovative treatments that I introduced as a Minister? This is now being pioneered in some parts of the country. Will he meet me and the Birmingham health partners to look at an interesting idea for digital place-based health impact bonds?
