The Physiotherapy Health Informatics Strategy

We can improve the working lives of physios, the services provided, and patients' outcomes by embedding the best use of informatics throughout the profession

Health informatics is 'the knowledge, skills and tools that enable information to be collected, managed, used and shared to support the delivery of healthcare and to promote health and wellbeing'.

The Physiotherapy Health Informatics Strategy (PHIS) will optimise the use of informatics in the design and delivery of physiotherapy services. The PHIS will contribute to maximising the outcomes of our patients and will support the work of CSP members across the four pillars of practice.

What is the PHIS?

The strategy is addressing how health informatics will impact the working lives of physios, the services provided, and patients' outcomes from 2022-27
