1 The National Programme for IT in the NHS in England (NPfIT) Richard Granger Director General September 2004

2 Context The NHS serves 52m people in England. In 2002-2003 it dealt with: –325m consultations in primary care (each person visits their GP an average of 6 times a year) –13m outpatient consultations –Almost 5.6m people admitted to hospital for planned treatment –Nearly 13m people attended A&E –4m emergency admissions –617m prescription items issued

3 Digital Information leads to Health 10.8% of patients on medical wards experience an adverse event, 46% of which were judged to be preventable One third led to greater morbidity or death, this means almost 1,300 hospital deaths each year could be prevented An average of 8.5 additional days unnecessarily spent in hospital If the data from a sample of trusts are extrapolated across the NHS, this costs almost £2 billion each year 12% of adverse events were related to medicines use In the NHS in England:

4 Our aim To deliver a 21st Century health service that is better for patients, citizens, clinicians and people working in the NHS through the efficient use of Information and Communication Technology To improve the convenience, quality and safety of patient-centred care by ensuring that those who give and receive care have the right information, at the right time

11 Value This will be achieved by: Avoiding multiple procurements Significant reduction in time taken on procurement and acquisition costs Reduced unit costs for applications and systems e.g. PACS Ensuring that multiple national suppliers maintain on-going post award competitive pressures at the time of any change, extension or renewal

12 Value, an example : PACS Technology to capture, store, display and distribute medical images far less waiting for X-rays and scans to be processed and checked reduced costs as there will be no films and less storage space and resource taken over 5 years to get PACS in 25 trusts. Roll out to 142 trusts by March 2006 and all 178 by March 2007 average price of total PACS system reduced by 50% with 71% pricing reduction on disc storage and 82% on PACS servers

17 What are we building? New National Network (N3) A combination of Broadband connections and network services to link all NHS organisations in England with specialist applications and wider Internet applications Orders already placed for the first 3,300 Broadband connections for the NHS NHS will represent 10% of all Broadband usage in Britain In longer term data circuits will provide voice services to make phone lines redundant and increase savings Over the next 7 years new contract will save an estimated £900m compared to existing NHSnet contract
