Dear Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust,

I am currently researching NHS Trust progress regarding the Five year Forward initiative for Trusts to go paperless and access patient information electronically at the point of care.

I would be most grateful if you could provide the information requested below as it relates to your trust. If you are unable to answer any question, or a particular question is not applicable because of a previous answer, please simply state so and move on to the next question.

I am aware of the calls on NHS time and am genuinely appreciative of you taking the time to provide the information requested.

Question One
Does the Trust have an Electronic Patient Record (EPR)?

If Yes:
Who is the principle software provider?

Are clinicians able to access patient records at the point of care (eg: at the bedside by cart, mounted PC etc) across all applicable locations?

If no:
Does the trust have a timetable to implement EPR?

Question Two
Has the trust fully implemented Electronic Prescribing Medicines Administration (ePMR)?

If no, does the trust have an anticipated timescale for full implementation?

Question Three
Has the trust implemented PSAG (Patient Status at a glance/ Electronic white boarding for bed management)?

If Yes, fully or partially?

If partially or No, Does the trust have an anticipated timescale for full implementation

Yours faithfully,

Mark Simmons
