MedEconomics: The reality of shared care records

Barton, Simon

GP: General Practitioner;3/3/2006, p67
The article focuses on the concept of shared care records. The big idea for electronic medical records was to have a single repository into which all medical records were placed or created. The planners of the concept were concerned about the risk that a single record could mean a single monopoly software supplier who could name his price and bankrupt the NHS. So competition was introduced by dividing England into five clusters, each with its own main contractor or a local service provider.
