The code outlines 10 key principles for safe and effective digital innovations, and 5 commitments from the government to ensure that the health and care system is ready and able to adopt new and innovative technology at scale. These are based on a significant amount of engagement with industry, research and academia, and are designed to create a trusted environment for data-driven technologies.
This is the initial version of the code. We want to work openly and in partnership to develop it, so that by following the principles it outlines, we in the health and care sector can collectively:
- help build a safe ecosystem for digital health and intelligent algorithms
- demonstrate that we have appropriate safeguards
- raise standards by establishing best practice
- show evidence of transparency and accountability
- create a competitive advantage for the NHS and UK health and care market
- build partnerships between health and care providers, their patients, service users and staff, industry and academia to ensure that all benefit from the enormous potential of digital innovation to improve lives and grow the economy
