Digital Priorities

We believe that sharing data effectively within health and social care can improve the quality of care for all our citizens whilst also making life easier for our staff. Our work is divided into 5 key Digital Notts priorities:

Public-Facing Digital Services (PFDS)

The Public-Facing Digital Services (PFDS) programme offers digital tools, services and support to connect our citizens to the information and services they need, when they need them. Our aim is to enable people to access care in a convenient and coordinated way, to promote independence through the everyday digitals tools that we are all familiar with.

Population Health Management

Across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, we use population health data to better understand the health and care needs of our local population, helping to focus and tailor resources where they have the most impact. It means that by identifying local ‘at risk’ cohorts, we can design and target interventions to prevent ill-health, and to improve care and support for people with ongoing health conditions.

Provider Digitalisation

Capacity and Flow is a Provider Digitisation Programme within the Integrated Care System (ICS). It dictates the way patient care and outcomes are managed across the ICS. Our vision is to be a flexible and efficient system that uses digital infrastructure to get the right people, to the right ​place, at the right time, to meet the needs of people across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

Shared Care Records

The Ecosystem Platform (ESP) approach to digital transformation offers the local Integrated Care System (ICS) an opportunity to improve Shared Care Records across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. Shared Care Records allow primary and secondary care clinicians to see the same information about a patient, meaning that patients only need to share their health and care history once instead of multiple times. This saves time, reduces inefficiencies and ensures that patients receive the right care and support first time.

Digital Inclusion

In a world where technology has increasingly become the default method for accessing everything from information and public services, to entertainment and communication, the Digital and Social Inclusion workstream is closing the gap by reducing health inequalities and ensuring socio-economic factors do not disadvantage access to digital services in our region.

Our mission is to....

  • Improve the way health information is shared to enhance service quality across health and social care services.
  • Support changes in the way health and social care services will be delivered in the future, so that more care takes place in people’s homes, closer to where they live – and in hospitals.
  • Improve collaborative working between IT service providers working in health and social care organisations.


Through our DAIT strategy, our vision is for our:

  • Citizens and service users to have the tools and capability to engage with local health and care services digitally
  • Frontline professionals to be supported by digital systems that make their work easier, and provide access to everything they need.

Our work directly benefits patients and their families, as well as supporting health and social care staff to work together to provide a more efficient and effective service.
