Personalising Patient Information in the Real World
- 347 Downloads
This paper describes the development and analysis of a prototype patient information system. The aim is to identify how a large, multi-provider clinical information system can be used to improve the way patient information is delivered, and consequently the quality of care given. Practical aspects of theoretical problems are dealt with and an emphasis is placed on providing a base for future extensibility as technology and NHS policy develops. Many issues identified by this project are typical of ongoing issues in British healthcare as a whole and are relevant to any seeking to expose the information held in medical databases to patients.
