Virtual NHS Smart Estates Congress

Innovative and forward-thinking technology is already being widely implemented across the NHS. For example, online consultations are changing the way patients access services, while smart sensors are enabling patients to be monitored remotely. Other changes include sharing of patient information across sites, supporting service integration, and the generation of huge amounts of data which can support the running of the estate. These and other changes are affecting the NHS estate in different ways.

The NHS is already on the path to delivering this future estate, however, there are several factors that need to be addressed ahead of this being fully achieved:

• Integrated, flexible plans – technology and the estate should be planned in an interoperable recognising the influence these areas have on one another.
• Planning as a system – planning estates and technology across organisations, both within and beyond the NHS, is an opportunity to make the most of shared resources.
• Learning from others and engaging widely – efforts to share learning across the NHS on technology and how it may affect the estate are invaluable.
• Funding – technology and estates projects both rely on capital funding, although increasingly technology also requires revenue investment.
• Infrastructure – use of technology in the NHS relies on having a robust infrastructure in place.
• National standards and regulation – national regulations and standards are key enablers for delivering technology and estates projects
