“The overarching objective of harnessing the information revolution is to make the NHS paperless by 2020” NHS England 2017

“All patient and care records will be digital, real-time and interoperable by 2020. By 2018 clinicians in primary, urgent and emergency care and other key transitions of care contexts will be operating without needing to use paper records.” Personalised Health and Care 2020, National Information Board

“Despite an increasing quantity of data about patients, few clinicians outside general practice have access to that data in real time and little progress has been made in developing an accessible decision-support system to supplement professional skills. In addition, we need patient records to be mobile, editable and accessible to all those in the care process, including patients themselves and carers. Digital records must support the delivery of care in the community as much as in the hospital – their mobility, extensibility and interoperability is fundamental….These proposals foresee a progressive implementation of digital data standards and an end to paper records in all NHS-funded care contexts within six years” Personalised Health and Care 2020, National Information Board

“Having access to the right information at the right time enables excellence. It helps professionals document handovers accurately and makes it easier to share information quickly across multi-disciplinary teams and with other providers… Access to accurate, timely and comprehensive information can transform the quality and efficiency of healthcare through improved clinical workflows, increased care optimisation and greater patient involvement. It is increasingly the hallmark of a modern, high quality healthcare system..” The Integrated Digital Care Fund: Achieving Integrated Health and Care Records

Following the national commitment to a paperless NHS, this one day conference focuses on a practical guide to delivering intelligent 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 to improve patient care and aid clinical decision making in real time. The conference outlines a number of different strategies for the implementation of EDM and discusses key issues including the legal framework and information governance. This will be complemented by practical case studies from NHS Trusts that have implemented Electronic Document Management in practice.

PLUS: a Free Pre Conference Supplier Showcase will be open to all and will include presentations from the key electronic document management systems suppliers.

100% of delegates at our previous conference on this subject would recommend it to a colleague.
