17 September, 2013 (13:52) | EPR, hand held records, IT fallacies, Nightmares!, Paper Records | By: rupertfawdry

In retrospect, it’s so obvious, yet no-one seems to have been ready to think through the following: A. Electronic Records EITHER “High Security” but “Minimal Access” i.e. access only by the owner of the record and no-one else –  Never, ever any Instant Duplication of Data (but how to stop that?) OR “Useful Access” but […]

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.
