Report by National Advisory Group on Health Information Technology in England
This report begins by covering the relevant background, in five areas:
1) General policy/practical issues that relate to health IT
2) A brief history of NPfIT
3) A brief history of health IT in England’s GP sector
4) A brief history of the US experience with digitising its healthcare system, with some possible lessons for the NHS
5) The recent consensus on digitising secondary care in England, reflected in the work of the National Information Board, the Five Year Forward View report, and the allocation of £4.2 billion to support digitisation.
After exploring this background, the report goes on to outline methods, and describe 10 overall findings and principles drawn from interviews, site visits, and deliberations.
Finally, 10 implementation recommendations are listed along with their rationales.
