Digital Strategy and Investment Planning

Plan your digital journey

Technology has the potential to transform care but only when aligned to clear clinical and operational goals. We can help you explore your options and build a digital strategy that meets those goals and is backed by your teams. More importantly, we help you understand the roadmap to success and the investment you’ll need to make it happen.

A digital strategy sets out how a single organisation or health care system will use technology to transform care.

New IT systems and transformation programmes are a significant investment, and there is critical planning required to ensure you get maximum value.

An effective digital strategy will be driven by business needs rather than by technology, and be grounded in your organisations’ corporate plan, service models and transformation programmes. It should consider the best use of innovative technologies to push the boundaries of digital care for better, faster outcomes for your patients and service users. 

To successfully implement a digital strategy you’ll need strong leadership and a commitment from your teams to maintain focus on enabling high-quality care. After clarifying your vision and objectives, we can help you explore your options and make future-proof decisions.

Channel 3 are recognised as specialists in helping health and care organisations develop ambitious, powerful and achievable strategies.

We work with you to create the roadmap that underpins your strategy, and to secure the investment you need. Here’s how:

We work with you to agree what your digital strategy needs to consider and the timeline for delivery.

We dive into your clinical and operational plans, assess your current digital landscape and engage your teams to get a deep understanding of the health and care context of your digital strategy.

Time to test our findings! We validate what we’ve learned with your clinicians, operational teams and leaders, agree key themes and options and work with you to start developing your strategy.

We help you prioritise actions and create a clear roadmap and investment plan. After taking further feedback, we help you document your strategy and plans in a way that’s easy to understand and gets people excited.
