The Welsh Assembly has unveiled plans to modernise the IT infrastructure in Welsh healthcare with an £88m investment over the next three years.
The focus of the Informing Healthcare Strategy will be to introduce new technologies as part of a change programme in working practices and the delivery of health services.
Welsh authorities plan to introduce single patient records and improve patients' access to their records. The money will help patients gain access securely, while maintaining confidentiality.
"Simply purchasing new ICT facilities will not solve our problems," said Jane Hutt, health minister for Wales.
"We need to integrate new technology with a strategy that addresses new ways of working, the requirement for new skills and behaviours for staff and patients and clarity about how new information will be used."
The Assembly has set aside £16m for IT improvements next financial year, with £36m budgeted for each of the following two years.
Earlier this week BT Syntegra won a £620m contract to develop the national patient care records at the heart of NHS reforms.
