Technology can help analyse historical health data to ‘locate’ problem areas
BCS Health, part of BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, is calling for Trusts that have put much effort into applying to the Technology Fund to significantly forward their informatics strategy, not to lay it to waste, but to create a sustainable & financed informatics strategy from their budgets.  The call comes in response to reports that NHS England’s second technology fund has been cut by nearly £200m, with only one-fifth of bidders to receive any money.
