    Plans to force the NHS to share confidential data with police across England are “very problematic” and could see patients giving false information to GPs, the government’s data watchdog has warned. In her first interview, Dr Nicola Byrne, the national data guardian for England told The Independent she has serious concerns over Home Office plans to impose a responsibility on the NHS to share patient data with police which she said “sets aside” the duty of confidentiality for clinicians. She also warned that emergency powers brought in to allow the sharing of data to help tackle the s

    Highlights Awareness of unintended consequences can help to balance a promissory discourse of digital health. Digital health technologies can disrupt power relations and lead to paradoxical outcomes. When digital health technologies fail staff can develop a general pessimism about innovations. When planning digital health technologies the ‘dark logic’ should be considered as well as to the potential. Accounts of unintended consequences make engaging stories for reflective, learning organisations.

    NHSX have revealed that they will fund and support 14 new projects across the country to help half a million people receive care at home using digital technology. This will include remote cardiac rehabilitation services and digital self-management systems, as well as parental support services for families of children with eating disorders. Tara Donnelly, Chief Digital Officer at NHSX, said: “Through our Digital Health Partnership Award, these organisations will have access to the expertise and support they need to adopt or expand their digital capabilities safely and effectively, allowing

    A national tech chief has called for a ‘radical simplification’ of the way in which NHS patients can opt out of having their data shared. NHSX chief executive Matthew Gould today said the current system was “overly complicated” with “too many different opt out mechanisms” and it needs to be made “super simple” for the public. His comments come as NHSX, NHS Digital and the Department of Health and Social Care are working on the much-delayed and controversial GP data-sharing programme. The scheme was paused indefinitely this summer after backlash from GPs and campaigners. Speaking

    One week ago NHSX published the first of its kind Digital Clinical Safety Strategy – but what do industry leaders think of the framework? The strategy aims to help the NHS provide a safer service when using digital technology, including through training and better use of data. Speaking to Digital Health News, Natasha Phillips, CNIO and director of patient safety at NHSX, said there was a clear demand for training in digital clinical safety in the NHS and that frontline staff were “excited” about learning more on using technology to improve safety. The strategy aims to set out a

    Digital solutions have already transformed how health services are offered, accessed and used, and will continue to do so in the years to come. With the adoption of new technologies, new ways of working are emerging that seek to combine the best of digital approaches with the benefits of face-to-face contact. In this online event, the panel of experts will explore how wearables have created better health outcomes for people living with long-term conditions, such as diabetes. They will look to the future and discuss how we can make sure that digital approaches are prioritised in the long

    Part 1 of the Digital Clinical Safety Strategy provides an introduction to patient safety and defines digital clinical safety. It summarises the evidence base behind this strategy and it explains the regulatory and policy context for the strategy. Part 2 sets out the Digital Clinical Safety Strategy. It directly links to the NHS Patient Safety Strategy, mirroring its structure, which highlights ‘Insight, Involvement and Improvement’, as three strategic priorities for safer systems and safer cultures. Actions are outlined for each of these three areas. The strategy specifies 23 actions, wh

    Widespread use of this tool could reduce the spread of COVID-19 in hospitals and avoid delays to treatment for people who are not infected with the virus. These AI models could be used to screen for COVID-19 in hospitals to help guide care and stream patients. The vast majority of people arriving at hospital who are COVID-19-negative according to the models could then be treated while awaiting confirmation from the hospital laboratory. When the models suggest someone does have COVID-19, they could await test results and undergo treatment away from other patients. This approach uses

    Key stats featured in the briefing paper are: 17% of over 65 years old said they lacked a suitable device to download a COVID-19 contact tracing app (Health Foundation 2020). 66% of all adults had never used the internet or apps to manage their health before the COVID-19 pandemic (Lloyds 2020). 19% of people booked GP appointments online in 2020 (GP Patient Survey 2020). The publication sums up its “top 10 takeaways” from the workshop. These include advice to: Address the knowledge gap – increase the quantity and quality of data, especially with poorly served

    The new Health and Care Bill gives NHS Digital powers to create a new ‘medicine registry’ The bill, published earlier this month, will allow NHS Digital to collect a range of information about the use of medicines and their effects in the UK and hold this data in one or more information system(s). The MHRA would be able to then use the information held in an information system to establish and maintain comprehensive UK-wide medicines registries. “This would improve post-market surveillance on the use [of] medicines. For example, where a safety issue has led to the introduction of mea

    Artificial intelligence (AI) tools and deep learning models are a powerful tool in cancer treatment. They can be used to analyse digital images of tumour biopsy samples, helping doctors quickly classify the type of cancer, predict prognosis and guide a course of treatment for the patient. However, unless these algorithms are properly calibrated, they can sometimes make inaccurate or biased predictions. A new study led by researchers from the University of Chicago shows that deep learning models trained on large sets of cancer genetic and tissue histology data can easily identify the insti
