New paper makes recommendations for using technology in health services

When it comes to using IT in health service, “we are going around in circles”

Trade association Intellect has published a paper titled ‘NHS Information Evolution’ which looks at how the NHS can make better use of technology, particularly to achieve Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt’s aim for all patient records to become paperless by 2018.

According to the report, when it comes to using IT in health service, “we are going around in circles”. It recommends certain changes, such as exploring what the architecture looks like that allows information to flow horizontally and follow the patient; giving sustainable improvements to patients in terms of information sharing, information transparency, enhanced patient safety, patient choice and patient involvement; as well as creating a level playing field for all size companies to innovate in an open, trusted environment.

The report also says that the NHS can lean from successful websites like lastminute.com when it comes to booking GP appointments and amazon.com for the delivery of care packages.
