The Digital Diagnostics Capability (DDC) programme was set up to help deliver the consolidation of diagnostics services identified in the NHS Long Term plan and support the initiatives of improving connectivity and digitisation identified in the Sir Mike Richards Diagnostics Review 2020.
The DDC programme is working to improve the information quality of diagnostics service outputs to improve the provision of healthcare in the NHS.
The objectives of the DDC programme include
- Creation of a collaborative and connected environment within diagnostics that drives development of user-centred digital capability.
- Enabling the efficient adoption of evidence-based capability that improves the quality and sustainability of patient care.
- To underpin the increasing maturity and collaboration of the networks delivering the objectives of the National Imaging and Pathology Programmes.
To improve collaboration the DDC programme is looking to introduce learning networks for Staff across the NHS, involved in digital diagnostics in their capacity as a commissioner, clinician, IT professional or project, programme manager.
