So why is IT-enabled information sharing working in some places? Service improvement driven, not IT led Therefore management and practitioner commitment Continual investment in staff support and revising working practices given IT enablement Trust in professional relationships fostered If sharing is in the patient/client interests, mindset = one of good reason not to share. Pragmatic and incremental progress. Not letting the best be the enemy of the good

So does that mean our re-freshed approach should be a new improved national IT system, done differently? NO!
So what is our current thinking? 1.Re-build relationships – clear signal about working in partnership - refreshed governance on that basis 2.Work collaboratively toward new health & social care information and IT strategy 3.One-size IT does not fit all 4.So clear signal about more flexibility around local solutions, underpinned by common set of standards and protocols.

Shared information is vital to improving the outcomes from integrated care services. All relevant information about a persons care should be available electronically to professionals and ultimately to service users. There should be a presumption in favour of information sharing with service users and staff. Personal information should only be shared for the integrated care purposes within the partnerships information sharing protocol. Data Sharing Technologies Board - Principles
Service users and staff should be engaged continually in improved use of information to achieve better outcomes. Robust information readily available to operational and strategic decision makers. Initiatives should optimise use of existing assets. Standards based approach to support convergence in line with the McClelland ICT Review.

Security and confidentiality Alarm at NHS IT breaches 14 February 2013 The BMA in Scotland has expressed disappointment at the number of NHS IT breaches….. Figures published today show that hundreds of NHS staff have been reported for breaching IT guidelines in hospitals over the past three years…. 481 incidents…. At least 15 workers had been sacked or resigned as a result, while some were given counselling…. Scottish Government does indeed take security and confidentiality very seriously…. Comprehensive ranges of improvements, as set out in the NHS Scotland Information Assurance Strategy. But will never be complacent.
Final thought: Galls Law A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that worked. The inverse proposition also appears to be true: A complex system designed from scratch never works and cannot be made to work. You have to start over, beginning with a working simple system. (from John Gall's Systemantics: How systems really work and how they fail)
