With more than 100 million outpatient appointments every year, the NHS has a major opportunity to introduce more efficient and patient-focused digital outpatient service. The HIN has worked with DigitalHealth.London and members to take advantage.

The Health Innovation Networks new digital outpatients online resource is now available on the DigitalHealth.London website.

This follows our successful digital outpatients collaborative work, with sixteen Trusts using digital technology for virtual consultations and new ways to reduce non-attendance.

Project lead Jess Parsons said: “I’m really pleased we’ve had such great feedback about the Digital Outpatients Collaborative. We worked really hard to support the Trusts and we’ve seen some impressive results which we should continue to build on in the future.”
