18 What is important to Nurses and Health Care Professionals
19 What did we learn from the Mid Staffordshire Public Enquiry How can Informatics and a paper free NHS try to prevent this from happening again?
20 What did we learn from the Mid Staffordshire Public Enquiry If something is in a paper record and never read than that is where it will stayIf something is in a electronic system it can be flagged and read by those that need to see itIt can be used to analyse the care providedIt can be used to help make a difference so the same mistake does not happen twice
21 Vital Signs – Patient Safety Agenda An example from my own trustThere is audit evidence that only about 70% of observations are actually done and/or recorded when done paper basedWhen electronic systems are introduced recording increases to nearly 100%.Partly, this is due to the fact that it is obvious where the gaps are and, perhaps more importantly, who is responsible.Steps in tasks can be made compulsory and there is no ‘corner-cutting’ or skipping items_healthcare_IT_can_help_address_the_findings_of_the_Francis_Report/86940Accessed 2/6/13
22 Its worth remembering… Its worth remembering…. If patient information is captured it can be investigated, analysed and presented in meaningful way to those that need that information this therefore provided the ability to remember and learn from mistakes as well as provide a real-time picture of how things are, were and to prevent mistakes from happening again
23 The Information Journey DataInformationKnowledge
24 ConclusionA Paper free NHS is not about taking all the paper out of the NHS, it is about making sure the information we hold on society is the most useful and meaningful form to benefit not only the patient but the population as a whole.
