This second HSJ technology guide, in association with BT, focuses on how to effectively combine clinical engagement and finance using IT

“The NHS is facing the biggest financial challenge in its history,” says BT Global Health president Ian Dalton. “No industry has achieved the level of transformation that we know is needed without the large scale adoption of IT. But the NHS too can create sustainability through the smarter use of IT to enable real clinical change.”

The BT and HSJ technology guides aim to help NHS boards understand how IT can be used more effectively to drive the transformation of NHS organisations and patients’ lives. This guide, the second in a series of three, turns to the role that directors of finance can play to support the delivery of higher quality care at lower cost.
