A perfect storm of newly appointed Dorset CCG CIO Stephen Slough, strategic partnering led by Trustmarque’s Client Manager Leigh-Anne Whittingham and, recent appointment Lee Francis (Director of Healthcare Strategy for Trustmarque) culminated in an exciting event last week. Where each organisation type within the Dorset Health Economy were represented and shown the art of the possible by colleagues at Microsoft.

Collaboration is the watch word and Office 365, Skype, Presence offers opportunity like never before. 

Stephen Slough commented on the day;

“In Dorset we are fortunate that the various entities providing health and wellbeing services are pulling together to work as a cohesive system of partners like never before.  Our Microsoft Experience day organised by Trustmarque has been key to jump starting the technology journey to both a more strategic and tactical way of working and thinking.  The need to change is not coming, it is here already.  Our ability to drive and direct the outcomes will be greater as a collaborative force for change than within our traditional organisation by organisation approach.”
