Description: The launch of the Nursing Technology Fund has come, in part, as a response to the Government’s commitment to reduce the burden of bureaucracy on nurses and midwives. The Fund will also allow them to use connected information and new technology to join up and improve services, make better informed decisions and deliver safer, more integrated care. The projects funded by the Nursing Technology Fund are envisaged to deliver a range of benefits for nurses and midwives helping them: * improve patient outcomes through access to information and resources at the point of care; • spend more quality time with individual patients with a heightened level of acuity and dependency; • reduce unnecessary journeys and overall amount of time spent travelling; • significantly reduce multiple collections, transpositions and duplication of data; • significantly streamline care processes by eliminating non-value adding steps; and • improve access to services and reduce waiting time as a result of releasing time to care.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The MPA RAG rating was Amber at Q2 2014. The delivery confidence was Amber as approval to launch the second round had, at that stage still not been obtained. The nursing sector and supplier community were beginning to raise concerns around the delay. Since then, negotiations with Her Majesty's Treasury resulted in endorsement of the launch with a £35M funding envelope, and the Programme remains on track to distribute the 2014/15 awards by the end of March 2015, and thus an improved delivery confidence.
Start date: 2013-11-01
End date: None
Schedule text: Approval to launch was received in November, resulting in a closing date for applications in December and approval of awards in January. The Programme remains on track to distribute the 2014/15 awards by the end of March 2015. A change in the funding profile was negotiated, meaning some awards will be distributed in 2015/16.
