With the official announcement of NHSX, a new unit which will oversee digital transformation of the health and care system, Digital Health News is asking readers for their opinion on whether it will have an effect.
Confirmed by Digital Health News and then later announced by government, the organisation will bring together the Department of Health and Social Care, NHS England and NHS Improvement.
A new CEO is set to head up NHSX and will have to report to the secretary of state for health and social care, the chief executives of NHS England and NHS Improvement, as well as the permanent secretary of the Department of Health and Social Care.
The main responsibilities of the new unit include developing, agreeing and mandating clear standards for the use of technology in the NHS as well as setting national strategy and mandating cyber security standard.
Following the launch of NHSX, we are asking readers whether they think the brand new unit will help improve digital transformation or not.
You have until midday on 28 February to cast your vote and the results will be published shortly afterwards.
