NHS Health Check Programme Digital Exemplar

 

Public Health England’s Digital Review

Public Health England underwent a Digital Review in August 2017 which made a series of recommendations to enable PHE to use technology and data to improve public health outcomes and deliver better services to our users. The ambitions  from the review are to digitally support the NHS prevention agenda, provide digital products to support local government, collaborate with commercial and other partners to ensure PHE is leading edge of digital innovation for public health and test new ways of working to enable PHE to become a more agile and innovative organisation.

NHS Health Check Digital Exemplar:

The NHS Health Check programme was selected as one of the eight Digital Exemplars. PHE’s national Digital, CVD Prevention and Behavioural Insight Teams are working in partnership to explore how digital technology could be used to support the NHS Health Check programme. Following an  “agile” approach to project management which follows the Government Digital Services (GDS) service manual.

The phases of a digital service are as follows. The links give more detailed information from the GDS Manual:

This is a new approach to the NHS Health Check programme using digital and service design with the view to improve prevention, early detection and management of non-communicable disease. It is important to note that there is no specific predicted product outcome of this work stream, the solutions will be developed to meet the needs identified during the discovery and alpha stages of the project.
