NHS Digital has published NHS digital, data and technology standards, including:
- a BETA NHS digital, data and technology standards framework, that presents principles and 9 core standards and expectations for organisations and suppliers working with the NHS
- BETA Clinical Information Standards, featuring a vision and roadmap
Matt Hancock MP, Secretary of State for Health and Social care, set out a vision at NHS Expo 2018 "for a more tech-driven NHS".
He spoke of the "critical importance of standards in the development of digital, data and technology products for the NHS".
Some standards are live now, some are future requirements. All will become mandatory when developing products for the NHS.
