The latest NHS England buzzword is IDCR (Integrated Digital Care Record). Guidance, standards etc. have been published in Safer Hospitals Safer Wards – reiterating the desire for fully digitised and integrated health records across all care settings by 2018. It doesn’t allow much time for NHS organisations to submit expressions of interest in the Technology Fund, though – […]

My “Personal View” that a unified paper record of health and social care would improve communication among professionals and institutions has today been published in the BMJ (BMJ 2013;346:f2064). The publication licence allows its permission on my own website, so here is the text.  Click here to view it on the BMJ website. Pregnant women throughout Britain […]

It may come as a surprise to learn that for over 20 years throughout Britain there has been only one whole group of people in receipt of healthcare that possesses a fully inter-operative and universally accessible record and with open access available to all those providing care: every expectant mother.

Our very own Rupert Fawdry is one of the clinicians interviewed in this report, which highlights the amount of data re-entry overload, inefficiencies, lack of interoperability etc. There is also a school of thought that […]

The WISDAM of interoperability

10 December, 2012 (13:40) | Casenotes, hand held records, Initiatives, Interoperability, Paper Records, Patient-Centered Care, S.IN.B.A.Ds | By: rupertfawdry

Having seen the incredible inefficiencies whenever my 99 year old mother made her many trips to the hospital via an ambulance I was amazed that my mother, even in her own home, had so many separate paper records with her. Even when the ambulance staff did have the sense to take the main care record […]

Be open and web-centric

27 May, 2012 (12:08) | Interoperability, open source | By: rupertfawdry

Okay, this may seem like advertising, but it’s such a rare event for me to find a product that I think actually does what it says on the tin that I want to spread the word about it. Yesterday (3rd May 2012) I attended HC2012 at the Business Design Centre in London. Among the exhibitors […]
