Commissioning Digital Services

Industry Masterclass

Learn how to commission successful digital healthcare services. Discover the challenges you’ll face along the way and how to overcome them.

Why Commission Digital Services?

The pandemic effect

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated digital health transformation, enabling clinical teams to manage patients more efficiently and improve outcomes. CCGs are under increasing pressure to commission new services to better meet the needs of their patients and improve the quality of care they provide, as well as deliver better value across their health economy.

The challenges

This is against a backdrop of challenges. We know that without engagement from stakeholders, being able to overcome resistance from the workforce and without the financial support and collaboration from the wider health economy, implementation and adoption of digital solutions is difficult.

 

The digital difference

The key to success is recognising that commissioning digital services is different. It is therefore vital that we understand and can tackle these differences.

 

This online masterclass outlines our three-phase approach that:

  1. identifies how to build a compelling case for digital change

  2. demonstrates how to build momentum for your project with key stakeholders

  3. ensures your new digital service is successfully embedded in the clinical pathway
