Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Implementation of ICT within Health and Social Care requires an aligned blend of strategic policy alongside research to promote innovation and creativity within services. This chapter explores the strategic context of developments within Europe, with a focus on the United Kingdom. In addition the value and opportunity for service orientated research as a mode to achieve high impact and sustainable implementation is proposed, thereby supporting evidence-based healthcare in this domain.
