The new and exciting field of Digital Healthcare looks to improving patient care and staff working experience by using technology and digital pathways. More and more job opportunities are being created for people with an interest and experience in implementing and designing Digital Health solutions. From patient records to research, health economics to clinical decision support, Digital Health aims to bring current IT technology to healthcare settings.


At UCLH we are proud to have had a successful implementation of our Electronic Health Record System (EHRS), which has had some significant improvements in staff workflows and patient experience, with services and treatment plans designed around patient needs. There is training in EPIC leading to an internationally recognised certification as well as the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills in EHRS and Digital Health.

Our EHRS at UCLH provides real-time information about any patient’s condition, treatment plan, diagnostic results, scheduled clinics and much more – providing clinical teams with the tools to provide timely and relevant advice to make the right decisions at the right time. For this role, you will work closely with clinical and administrative / managerial staff, helping them analyse their processes and agreeing clinical best practice standards and future workflows. At the heart of this is improving patient safety, integrating care, further developing our research hospital, standardising pathways, supporting local service developments, improving operational efficiency, user experience and innovation. You will also support end-users using your application knowledge through regular meetings and in incident investigation and resolution. You will be modifying the system and testing your changes to ensure that it is safe, usable, and works as expected.

To be successful in this role, you should have a good understanding of inpatient services, ideally have some experience of Midwifery and Women’s Health for the Maternity role, and a genuine enthusiasm to improve services through digital technology.
