The Academy of Royal Medical Colleges has published ‘Information and Digital Technologies Clinical Requirements 2020‘. This is published on the National Information Board website and relates to Personalised Health and Social Care 2020. This document outlines a medical perspective on clinical systems particularly in relation to the Personalised Health and Social Care 2020 agenda. The document details clinical requirements in the following categories
- Overarching objectives
- The patient record
- Digital interaction between patient and clinician
- Digital prescribing
- Administrative functions
- Transfers of care
- Clinical Governance
In previous posts I have looked at a number of papers which can be accessed via the metaindex for 2017 mental health informatics posts.
There are several papers that I have reviewed that are linked.
- Personalised Health and Social Care 2020. This document is published by the National Information Board.
- Information and Technology for Better Care. This document is published by NHS Digital and links to the National Information Board Framework.
- The NHS Five Year Forward view is another key document which extends from 2014-2019 but also references a digital aspect to the plan.
- There is also a paper on MyNHS titled ‘MyNHS – Greater transparency for better health and care’. This relates to the agenda outlined in Personalised Health and Social Care 2020.
- There is another related paper that I have reviewed previously ‘The Standards for the Clinical Structure and Content of Patient Records’.
The documents above are interlinked although there is a subtle difference in timing (i.e. one ends in 2019 and the other in 2020).
