What does 'Digital' mean to you?

The word ‘digital’ is widely used and is increasingly part of our everyday lives, from online shopping and banking to buying insurance and booking holidays.  We're also seeing it increasingly across public services.  But what does it mean to you?  What devices, social media and online services do you use, and why?

Why the contribution is important

We think it's important to have a conversation about how and why you use digital in your day to day life and how you think it can help support and shaper Scotland's health and social care services into the future.

    Not clear about what the idea is? If we are transforming services, then part of the due diligence for this will be a Discovery period where channel preference/device usage amongst the audience would be flushed out - and the opportunities established. By having a conversation at a broader/national level, we would not necessarily obtain the detailed insights that would drive digitisation solutions for the service in question.

    You are jumping ahead and leaving thousands in your wake.
    The question to ask is how many patients aged 70 or over on 3 or more repeat prescription DON'T have broadband at the moment. That's the technology poverty gap that you need to address for the real advance in digital health...self care, tech, health apps...are not even on the agenda for disabled pensioners living alone trying to pay fuel bills and feed themselves. Need to get real about the digital patient revolution that health care leaders are so keen to pat themselves on the back for.
