About time too

There’s a lot of news coverage today about the call from the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) for the standardisation of observation charts and introduction of a National Early Warning Score (NEWS).  We note that NEWS is not recommended for use in pregnancy or children under 16, but it’s a welcome step in the right direction.

Whatever happened to the MUMMIES Project?

This is a question that has been engaging Rupert and myself for some time now. All the documentation seems to have vanished into thin air. The following link is to a blog post by John Harris from 2004, written primarily for an American readership, which gives the best account I have seen so far of […]

The future of the National Programme for IT : Department of Health – Media Centre. A Department of Health review of the National Programme for IT has concluded that a centralised, national approach is no longer required, and that a more locally-led plural system of procurement should operate, whilst continuing with national applications already procured.

Giving “logical priority” to individual care

This draft is an attempt to provide a standardised, chronologically-based, flow-patterned set of data definitions both for the wording of the question and for the allowable answer options. It forms the first of the two most crucial parts of the EEPD website.

The second crucial concept concerns the need to accept a hybrid system of paper records and electronic records with full documentation of what should happen at each maternity or neonatal RIO (Realistic Input/Output Opportunity). The “Logical Prioritisation” chronologically-based, flow-patterned set of draft question and answer definitions not only helps to prioritise the massive amount of work involved; but also provides a clear “spine” into which it becomes easier to fit all future proposed all additional data items.
The draft chronologically arranged, flow-patterned ”Logical Priority” set of questions and all allowable answers, is therefore the most important part of the EEPD website project.
