NHS.UK Moves to Beta

The UK is developing a new digital health and care service called NHS.UK. This has been in alpha for the past few months with a team working on various ideas and building prototypes and testing them with users. DigitalHealth.net has a nice overview with an interview with Dan Sheldon, the strategy lead for NHS.uk.

The NHS.uk service is now moving to beta which means that the prototypes will become digital services that can be used by the public and further tested by the NHS.uk team. The idea is that the new NHS.uk will gradually replace the NHS Choices website with information and apps that are more tightly integrated with NHS services. An example is the Diabetes planner prototype. Instead of offering just a page of information about the condition, patients will be able to access a service that helps patients manage their condition:

DiabetesPlanner
