Description: The DSP programme will deliver a modern data platform (DSP) to improve how NHS Digital manages, analyses and provides access to data for healthcare planning and research. The investment forms part of the wider Digital Transformation Portfolio in the NHS that is being overseen by the Digital Delivery Board (DDB). The investment in the DSP is key to the transformation of NHS Digital’s Data, Insights and Statistics services. It will enable infrastructure savings and workforce efficiencies and reductions in NHS Digital and Data Services for Comissioning Regional Offices (DSCROs); and it will provide commissioners, providers and researchers with access to better quality, timelier, more linked and new data, enabling efficiencies in the delivery of healthcare services and improved health outcomes.
