There is an opportunity to provide greater visibility and use of data and information in its widest forms, e.g. social data, medical outcomes data, public health data, patient experience data, hospital admissions data to enhance knowledge and information and promote health & wellbeing to citizens as well as wider stakeholders. Making high level data available to the public also encourages greater patient and public participation in health and social care issues, self-management of health and care and stimulating behaviour change. The latter is regarded as essential to the long-term sustainability of public health and social care provision. Digital platforms for capturing patient data and experience, and enabling peer-to-peer and professional sharing can be readily developed and used to share knowledge and understanding on issues like the management of long-term conditions.
