The Eye Care Digital Playbook – How digital technology is transforming ophthalmic service delivery

Join speakers from NHSX, The Royal College of Ophthalmologists and the national Eye Care Restoration & Transformation programme sharing the successes and challenges of implementing digitally supported care, to restore and transform ophthalmic services in the pandemic.  Delayed and postponed appointments are exacerbating pre-existing capacity problems and risk of avoidable loss of vision. In response to the pandemic measures in place and to continue delivery of care, ophthalmologists have begun to find new ways to meet patient needs and restore services in a safe and sustainable way.

The webinar will showcase the NHSX Eye Care digital playbook, as part of a series of webinars with The Royal College of Ophthalmologists to look at how the eye care playbook can improve patient experience and directly help clinicians support their patients. We'll be looking in detail at the playbook and featuring various case studies showing how digital solutions are being used across the NHS to solve common issues. 

The first webinar explores:

  • how the Eye Care Restoration and Transformation programme is driving major changes rapidly for the benefit of patients with eye conditions
  • the role and benefits of digital technology in delivering better eye care pathways
  • how to access and use the eye care digital playbook
  • experiences from those who have implemented digitally supported care, the successes and challenges
The national Eye Care Restoration and Transformation programme is bringing together national stakeholders and patient organisations to implement changes to deliver care differently using the wider workforce, primary care optometry, highly efficient care pathways and the widespread adoption of digitally supported care, developing joined-up whole-system services and personalised healthcare for all patients. There are already many examples of successful use of digital technology to improve eye care for patients, join the webinar to hear from ophthalmology clinical leads and NHSE&I.

About NHSX Digital Playbooks
Last December, NHSX launched a library of digital playbooks on its website, as part of a programme of work supporting the commitment to reduce face-to-face outpatient appointments by up to a third over the next five years, as set out in The NHS Long Term Plan

The digital playbooks are aimed at NHS staff and use case studies to show how different technology is being used across the UK to support clinicians and improve care. They cover the five highest-volume specialities: cardiology; respiratory; ophthalmology; musculoskeletal and dermatology. Further playbooks are planned this year, with exact specialties to be announced in the coming months.
