The Derbyshire Local Digital Roadmap (LDR) sets out an ambitious vision for how the local health and care system intends to exploit digital technology to deliver the Sustainability and Transformation Plan and Paper-free at the Point of Care by 2020.
Derbyshire has a strong track record of informatics partnership and collaboration, fostered and coordinated by the Derbyshire Informatics Delivery Board (DIDB). The strength of these existing relationships between health and care providers, commissioners and the public has been the key to articulating the ambition of this roadmap. It has provided a solid background of local cooperation and shared strategy upon which this roadmap has been built and a strong foundation upon which this ambitious vision can be achieved.
The development of the LDR has been undertaken in conjunction with the creation of the Derbyshire Sustainability and Transformation Plan to ensure that the ‘golden thread’ of digital enablement runs through Derbyshire’s ambitions and plans for sustainable transformation. It has been shaped to meet the dual requirements of the STP and NHS Digital, but importantly its primary focus is to use information and technology innovatively to deliver better quality outcomes to the people of Derbyshire.
