Digital ICS

The Digital ICS programme is a free support offer for integrated care boards (ICBs) and integrated care system (ICS) leaders. It is delivered by NHS Providers in partnership with the NHS Confederation and Public Digital, and is supported by Health Education England and NHS England. The programme is an extension of our existing Digital Boards programme and is designed to support ICS leaders seize the digital opportunity and deliver their system ambitions.

Digital transformation is a fundamental enabler in delivering the four core purposes of ICBs:

  • Improving population health and healthcare
  • tackling unequal outcomes and access
  • enhancing productivity and value for money
  • helping the NHS to support broader social and economic development.

ICS leaders must therefore have an understanding of how to harness new digital opportunities.

The offer includes:

  • Free board development sessions – bespoke agendas will be co-designed with ICBs to meet the specific digital needs of the system and enable the ICB to reflect on how digital can support delivery of the core strategic purposes of the ICS
  • peer learning events – our events will give system leaders the opportunity to hear from peers across health and care and other sectors, share best practice, explore the art of the possible and learn key factors for successful digital transformation
  • resources and insight reports – our quarterly insight reports will share learning and emerging good practice from across the sector.
