    Abstract

    Technology and the internet are transforming society. They are changing the way we talk to each other, work with one another and organise our lives. More open access to quality data increases our understanding of how diseases develop and spread. Linking data gives us insight into the whole patient journey, not just isolated episodes of care. Advances in technology help people to do things quicker, more efficiently and with better results. Launching a health information revolution that puts patients in control of their own health and care information, and makes services convenient, accessible and efficient, is now a major priority for the Department of Health.
