The Digital Child Health (DCH) programme was created to support the vision in Healthy Children: Transforming Child Health information and to ensure key health information can be shared appropriately with all those involved in the care of a child.
The first step in providing modern, responsive services for children is to ensure that key health information can be shared appropriately with all those involved in the care of a child. We are doing this by working with colleagues across health, care and information technology to redesign information services and to promote interoperability within the Healthy Child programme to:
- support personalised care
- promote the offer and uptake of preventative programmes
- support integration across the domains of health, social care and education.
