SUPPORTING DIGITAL FIRST PATHWAYS

Optimising digital interactions to improve patient outcomes during Covid-19

During the pandemic, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection, health and care systems rapidly implemented digital technology to reduce the need for physical contact between patients and clinicians. We are supporting our health and care partners across Somerset, Devon and Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly to facilitate effective and equitable digital-first care.

Together we are aiming to identify areas of best digital practice that can be rapidly shared and spread across the region to improve patient outcomes. These ‘digital-first’ care pathways are enabling health and care teams to rapidly exchange information and clinically manage patients at a time of social distancing.
