This paper provides an overview of trends in Scottish health and social care policy, summarises an emerging Industry 4.0 toolset that is transforming other sectors and then demonstrates the use of this toolset for optimisation of transactional healthcare provision. It then argues that there is little progress in the use of these capabilities for integrated, person-centred care services.
