Healthcare Policies and Regulatory Landscape
Policy changes and Reimbursement scenario
In 2002, the UK government launched development of the National Programme for Information Technology (NPfIT) NHS Care Records Service, which was intended to deliver an electronic health records system containing patient records from across the UK. There were problems with poor user requirements analysis, the failure to address patient confidentiality, overambitious timescales, and enormous cost overruns. It was eventually closed down in 2011 as part of the dismantling of the NPfIT programme. The UK government chose the top-down, government-driven approach: a “nationwide implementation of EHRs, known as the NHS Care Records Service, is the cornerstone of the £12.7 billion National Programme for Information Technology (NPfIT)”. This very ambitious approach required enormous resources. “In order to begin the process of creating a system that supports health IT for the entire nation, the UK with the help of four companies including the US-based company, the Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), began one of the largest and ambitious health IT projects that the world had ever seen in early 2002… NPfIT attempted to create a national EHR system for the entire UK. It was a project that would eliminate the challenges of interoperability between various competitive EHR systems around the UK.” The initiative came to an end in 2011. “Launched in 2002 and officially dismantled in 2011, NPfIT included the first sustained national attempt to introduce centrally-procured EHR systems across the NHS’s hospitals, including mental health settings.”
