Our Group Digital Strategy

← Back to Themes

Working with our health and care partners


Our ambition for this theme

We need to work better with our local health and care partners to make sure that our systems  talk to each other.

We want it to be easy for our staff to make sure our patients get the care in the community they need. We will create a single shared system to manage putting care packages in place that all our partners use, rather than relying on unconnected systems and processes.

We will work to make sure we are supporting the four transformation aims of the Northamptonshire Health and Care Partnership, including implementing the Northamptonshire Care Record (NCR) and supporting the Integrated Care In Northamptonshire (ICAN) programme.


Our priorities

  1. Implement the Northamptonshire Care Record (NCR), fully supporting the digital strategy for the Northamptonshire Integrated Care System (ICS).
  2. We will fully support the development of the ICS Digital Strategy, and the delivery of the digital requirements of four transformation priorities, starting with ICAN.
  3. We will contribute to the creation of an ICS-wide dataset that can support decision-making across the system and population health management.
