Please see Healthy Children: transforming child health information which is now available on the NHS England website.
This sets out a vision of how health records will transform the way children’s health information is gathered and used to support both parents and professionals in providing the highest quality care for children and young people. NHS England’s Healthy Children sets the strategic direction for the future investment and development of Child Health Information systems supporting the ambitions of FYFV (Five Year Forward View) and PHC2020 (Personalised Health and Care 2020) as well aligning with ‘Better Births’ to ensure that future Maternity and Children’s services meet the needs of women and their families by delivering care that is as safe as the best available. Technology is fundamental to health sector transformation and should be central to the delivery of health and care for both adults and children.
This document sets out the case for restructuring the information services and systems for children, young people, parents and families so they can contribute fully to improving their health and wellbeing and collaborate easily with professionals across the spectrum of care. The vision is for transformed child health information services, which will know where every child is and how healthy they are and which give appropriate access to information for all involved in the care of children.
