The NHS Trust is partnering with Agilisys to deliver a Data Platform Programme that supports the Trust’s ambition to create a digitally-enabled healthcare future.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for us to enhance our data analytics capability, harnessing the power of the Trust’s data to develop a state of the art, modern solution which improves care and efficiency, reduces risk and saves money,” said Guy Dickie, Associate Director of Digital at Leeds Teaching Hospitals. “Using our existing strong foundations, we have a once in a generation opportunity to revolutionise and scale our use of data.”
