Future standards roadmap

In the Data Saves Lives strategy we committed to producing a future standards roadmap, designed to support anyone with an interest in care record and interoperability standards in England. It will:

  • provide a system-wide overview of standards that are either proposed, in development or are changes to existing standards, including any estimated timescales, if known
  • support collaboration and provide opportunity to engage with the standards developer to identify any synergies to reduce duplication and burden
  • enable the health and adult social care organisations and suppliers to plan the implementation of standards.

Get in touch

We are seeking feedback on the roadmap structure and content. If you think there is anything missing from this list or you want us to publish more information about each item, please get in touch with the Standards & Interoperability team via email at
