This strategy is a complete revision
of the current Health Informatics Strategic Plan. The decision was
taken by the Trust Board earlier in 2015 to reject the Business
Case for the Clinical Portal Project and instead requested that the
Health Informatics Strategy was re-written in line with the Trust's
Clinical and Quality Strategy.
The Trust now requires a change in
approach to deliver a unified Electronic Patient Record (EPR) for
County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust (CDDFT). This
document provides a framework as to how Health Informatics will
move forward as a function to support the delivery of the
organisation's vision of care being given in the right place at the
right time, first time and every time.
The scope of this strategy is broad,
addressing issues for both clinical and non-clinical stakeholders.
The primary focus of this strategy is the technology and
information requirements of CDDFT, but clearly many initiatives and
required developments will impact on the wider Local Health
also a number of national and local drivers which have dictated the
need for this revised strategy and timeline, outline in section 5
of this document.
