Electronic Document Management in Healthcare: Delivering A Paperless NHS
Venue: ICO Conference Centre
22 Berners Street
Date: 1 Oct 2014
Synopsis: Following NHS Englandâ€™s committment to a paperless NHS, this one day conference focuses on a practical guide to delivering electronic document management in your organisation. The delivery of clinical care is no longer from a single place with a single record location but from multiple sites (including the patients own home) and the electronic record needs to be available in these multiple sites.
"Removing the need for paper entry, duplication and storage also reduces costs in the long-term" NHS England May 2014
"Some Trusts are at an advanced stage with digital records embedded in routine clinical practice. In contrast others continue to have a significant dependency on paper records. These can be inefficient and pose a potential risk to patient safety as timely accurate and comprehensive information is not shared or available at the point of care." NHS England May 2014
The conference outlines a number of different strategies for the implementation of EDM and discusses key issues including the legal framework and information governance. This will be complemented by practical case studies from NHS Trusts that have implemented Electronic Document Management in practice.
