Information Sharing

(including digital, IT and technology)

  • To fully realise the frailty icare toolkit, a digital infrastructure is required for people, staff and commissioners that is fit-for-purpose.
  • It must permit appropriate access to care records, allow data-sharing for planning of provision and commissioning, and support the use of assistive technology and telemedicine.
