Harnessing technology in a way that works for everyone

Digital technologies and artificial intelligence have the potential to revolutionise the way health and care services are delivered.

They can help drive improvements in quality and efficiency, as well as supporting patients to manage their own health and wellbeing.

We are committed to using technology in a way that works for everyone; helping make care better for patients and helping staff make the most of technology-driven healthcare.

The digital health programme for BOB STP will build upon foundations laid down by the Oxford Academic Health Science Network through its work on the development of a digital roadmap.

The Programme has received an £11.43 million boost from NHS England, which will be matched locally by BOB STP creating an £23 million budget.
