Clinical Decision Support Systems in your organisation

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Gearoid Bolguidhir

Dear The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust,

I am researching the use of clinical decision support systems used in NHS Trusts. As such I am making this request under the Freedom of Information Act (2000).

To assist you, what I mean by clinical decision support systems, these are stand alone or integrated software which helps clinical staff make safe decisions and take appropriate action. The can be algorithms, care plans, clinical referencing, or clinical condition specific guidelines which incorporate treatment or decision making.

Proprietary examples include:

• BestPractice (BMJ)
• ClinicalKey, ExpertPath, STATdx, Arezzo (Elsevier)
• DXS
• DynaMed, DynaMed Plus, Isabel (EBSCO)
• First DataBank, Zynx (Hearst)
• IBM Watson, Micromedex (IBM)
• iRefer (MedCurrent)
• MedicinesComplete (BNF)
• Provation
• LexiComp, UpToDate (WoltersKluwer)
• ThinkResearch (ThinkResearch Corporation)

To assist me with my research, could you please give me the following information please:

1. Does the trust operate any clinical decision support systems (examples above)

◦ If so, which ones?

2. What is the cost of licences (and any other support) the Trust paid on clinical decision support systems in the financial years 2017-18 & 2018-19

3. Has the trust developed their own electronic clinical decision support system(s)?

4. If so, what were the WTE and total funding costs incurred in development of their own clinical decision support system(s) for the financial years 2017-18 & 2018-19 respectively

5. What was the Trusts’ total operating budget for financial years 2017-18 & 2018-19 respectively

I appreciate the time you will give to this request and if you require any clarification please do not hesitate to come back to me.

Yours faithfully,

Mr GM Bolguidhir
