1 An electronic patient record for CLEFTSiS – the National Managed Clinical Network for Cleft Services in Scotland John Clark, Lead Clinician CLEFTSiS and Trudie McDonald, Network Manager

2 The CLEFTSiS EPR project A pilot funded by the Scottish Telemedicine Action Forum (STAF) to develop an EPR linking 5 sites; Perth (Admin Centre for the MCN) Aberdeen Edinburgh Glasgow Inverness.

3 The CLEFTSiS EPR project Procurement Undertaken within the framework of EC/WTO rules governing Public Sector procurement under the direction of the Head of the Business Advisory Group of the Information Services Division (ISD). AxSys Technology commissioned to develop the EPR base on their system Requirement an electronic patient record which includes images (photographs, video, radiographs) and sound recordings. Application to STAF for funding

4 Concerns about the quality of care  The Clinical Standards Advisory Group (an independent source of advice to the UK Health Ministers and to the NHS) was asked to investigate the care provide in the UK. Background to the UK cleft service  Resources should be concentrated in UK centres instead of the current 57. There should be one centre in Scotland

5 Between 70 and 120 live births per year The Scottish solution

6 Care extends from birth to 20 years

7 Reorganisation of Scottish services following the CSAG report A Managed Clinical Network (CLEFTSiS) was established in April 2000 to provide and co- ordinate the highest standard of care for patients with cleft lip and/or palate, as far as possible in their own locality, to agreed national standards and guidelines. There would be only one centre – Scotland – with not less than two WTE cleft surgeons vested in three people who undertake surgery according to an agreed common protocol.
