Implementing scalable digital healthcare solutions in England: is the condition of society a factor?
The use of digital healthcare to complement, aid, or replace traditional healthcare has been debated as having the potential to empower patients to take responsibility in managing their conditions, streamline workloads of healthcare professionals, and be cost-effective for the National Health Service in England. Despite this, national programmes to implement digital health solutions have been problematic, and this has been debated from various perspectives. This paper aims to add to the debate from a perspective that considers whether daily discourses of society play a role in conditioning the public against scalable digital health solutions.
