But delivering the key benefits requires three things: the appropriate technology, the right governance structure and a culture of adoption. Learn about this at The King’s Fund’s 13 Dec full day conference at Horizon Leeds, where you will explore the different models that have been developed over the past few years and learn how local areas are overcoming these challenges.
