Andrew Meyer Bio –
Andrew has successfully led many public and private sector teams delivering transformational programmes across digital health. Andrew headed up the replacement of the NHS National Spine service (Demographics, Electronic Prescriptions, Summary Care Record, Messaging and Identity & Access Management), re-developing the service and transitioning it in-house. He has since built the NHS Digital Delivery Centre from a very small team to more than 400 strong, a hub of talent responsible for developing and operating critical digital NHS infrastructure which services patients, citizens and NHS staff 365 days a year.
He also leads the Integrated Care Programme, an ambitious plan of activity focused on the interoperability of IT systems across health and social care which will transform patient care.
Andrew’s passion is developing the workplace and culture to support high performing teams using Lean and Agile tools and techniques to maximise value and support fast and innovative delivery.
