With the improvements in technology, the healthcare industry has been looking to adopt new practices to improve the efficiency and the number of patients that they can reach. A series of workshops and online activity has been launched to engage people and their family doctors in designing new ways for GPs to engage with their patients digitally. GPs will seek to identify the needs of people compared with what their doctor can provide and explore ways of solving it digitally.
The project will be run by the Health and Social Care Alliance with support from the Scottish Government and digital company mhabitat. The Scottish Government’s national clinical strategy, released earlier this year, stated more people should be able to live at home, managing their own conditions.
