Date: 11 Mar 2014

"There must be total commitment to ensuring that interaction is paperless, and that, with a patientâ€™s consent, their full medical history can follow them around the system seamlesslyâ€¦Most systems wonâ€™t necessarily need to be replaced, just updated or adapted so they can talk with each other. A thousand different local solutions linking together using common standardsâ€¦That the right sort of technology, used in the right way, can release billions of pounds to be re-invested in better, safer care â€“ and millions of hours of staff time for better patient care.â€ Jeremy Hunt, Health Secretary 15 January 2013 â€œOur vision is for a fully integrated digital patient record across all care settings by 2018â€ SAFER HOSPITALS, SAFER WARDS: ACHIEVING AN INTEGRATED DIGITAL CARE RECORD, NHS England 2013
