“Today I want to argue that we need to go much further, much faster.So today I am setting a new ambition for the NHS.I want it to become paperless by 2018. The most modern digital health service in the world.Patients will be at the heart of this change” Jeremy Hunt, Health Secretary 15 January 2013 “Safe, digital record keeping is the hallmark of a modern, sustainable and patient led health and care service... An ’Electronic Document Management system can provide a shared repository for clinical documentation. It can be linked with scanning solutions to support moving away from paper records but can also hold electronically generated documents from the various systems in the organisation.” SAFER HOSPITALS, SAFER WARDS: ACHIEVING AN INTEGRATED DIGITAL CARE RECORD July 2013 Following NHS England’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.
