Health secretary Matt Hancock visited Leeds-based health technology provider EMIS Group today (Friday 19 October) to see joined up healthcare in action.

The visit took place in the week he launched his technology vision for the NHS, which stresses the importance of different systems talking to each other to support joined-up care.

EMIS Group’s chief medical officer Dr Shaun O’Hanlon – a former GP – and Peter Southby, chief financial officer, hosted the visit. Dr O’Hanlon presented highlights of the company’s software and outlined forthcoming plans for innovation that are aligned with Matt Hancock’s vision of a technology-enabled health service.
