Video: Local Digital Transformation - Helping elderly people live more independent lives

Paul Thomas and Tim Gregson of Microsoft talk about consent to sharing digital health records

“All health and social services can have access to the same data but to do this the individual needs to have a stake in the ownership of their records,” says Thomas. “This means when they are transitioning from one organisation to another they can bring information with them.”

Thomas was speaking at an UKAuthority Local Digital Transformation event on how the latest technology can help people live long, more independent lives.

His colleague Tim Gregson explained the benefits to the individual, as well as their family, friends and any relevant public sector organisations.
