We've just published an update to our digital strategy. It's the statement of intent bit, describing the big themes of our work this year:
- Openness: conducting our work in the spirit of openness
- Simplicity: making things easy
- Evidence: making consistently well-informed decisions
- Mainstream: having the confidence and experience to innovate again and again
- Efficiency: saving time and money
Here's an extract:
Our digital work is already helping us to innovate and think beyond our established ways of working, enabling us to find better, quicker, cheaper solutions to problems. But it is also giving us the confidence to look ahead and plan for a more connected, more digital future [...]
The exemplar projects we delivered as part of our 2013 to 2014 strategy have demonstrated how a more open, more nimble, more digital mindset can help the department save time and money, help staff work smarter, and ultimately help the department to develop and deliver more effective policy for the country’s health and care.
Our strategy for the next year is to build on what we have already achieved, moving from ‘proof of concept’ to ‘delivery at scale’.
The other bits of our strategy are our operating model, and our programme of work - currently 25 live projects, as well as lots of good ideas for things we might do next. We'll use this blog to report on them as we go.
