BBC News reports today on the headaches at the Royal Free with their computerised records system:
"The Royal Free, one of a number of early adopters of e-records, has been using the system since last summer.
"The project, restricted to England, has been one of the most controversial aspects of the overall 10-year IT programme, which also involves an online booking system, digital imaging for X-rays and electronic prescriptions. "
As I've learned, there's something of a push to promote social enterprise in the NHS and software development is what P-CED does to earn revenue for mission support.
We've been developing online booking software for 20 years and as distributors have both a patient records and digital imaging available as products.
We even have lomgstanding NHS customers.
So why don't the NHS and social enterprise ever seem to meet?
