NHS Digital’s Architects explain how architecture works in practice to support and improve health and care services.
Catching patients before COVID-19 bites
Oximetry @home allows COVID-19 patients to stay at home and get the care they need safely. Jonathan Telfer, Senior Technical Architect at NHS Digital, explains the approach and the data architecture behind it.
Finding the vulnerable before COVID does

Lessons from the coalface of API-first design
Our ‘API-first’ approach is making it easier for developers, suppliers and partners to connect to our platforms and services. Brian Diggle, Technical Architect at NHS Digital, gives a behind-the-scenes look at how this approach works in practice.
How we created the Shielded Patient List
Mark Reynolds, Interim Chief Technology Officer at NHS Digital, explains the architecture behind the NHS Shielded Patient List, which is helping to protect the most vulnerable members of society during the coronavirus pandemic.
