3 Minutes With: Rachel Dunscombe
Rachel Dunscombe is a member of Matt Hancock’s Healthtech Advisory Board, CEO of the NHS Digital Academy, and now global (non-US) leader and senior evangelist at KLAS, the collaborative of 170 healthcare organisations across 10 countries.
Here, Rachel and her colleague, Jim Ritchie, explain how they led the introduction of health apps at one of NHS England’s global digital exemplars (GDEs). Rachel was recently the director of digital at the Northern Care Alliance (NCA) NHS Group, which included Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust and The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust. ORCHA advised Rachel on which apps perform well and fit the organisation’s objectives.
