NAO urged to investigate 1st "go live" of electronic records at Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre (NOC)

BBC NEWS | Health | Fears over patient record system

The BBC is today running a story about calls for the National Audit Office to investigate the implementation of the NHS National Programme for IT (NPfIT) electronic care records system at Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre (NOC) based on a story in Computer Weekly.

It suggests that patients were put at risk when the hospital, the first in the Southern Cluster and the first to implement the Cerner Millenium system from the Fujitsu Alliance, finally went live on 20 December 2005.

This is a small hospital with only one specialty - lets hope that some of the lessons from this implementation have been learnt before it is implemented in more complex settings over the next few months.
