The Global Digital Exemplar (GDE) programme is designed to support leading Trusts in developing local capabilities to utilise digital technology to underpin care transformation such that they become global leaders.

NHS England requires a supplier to carry out an Independent Knowledge Sharing and Evaluation of the Global Digital Exemplar Programme as an ongoing evaluation over the full life of the programme (namely four years) across up to 30 Acute sites.

The requirement is for a full evaluation of the global digital exemplar programme, including the curation, collation and diffusion of existing and future learning, investigation of the anticipated and actual benefits and the barriers and facilitators to a paperless NHS.
