Dear FOI Team,

I would like to submit a request for a disclosure of information relating to your NHS trust’s Information Technology (IT) Spend, and your current HIMSS EMRAM and INFRAM scores.

Can you please provide your trust’s IT spend for the following financial years:
FY 2021-2022:

Which HIMSS EMRAM score have your Trust currently achieved (0-7):
Which HIMSS INFRAM score have your Trust currently achieved (0-7):
If your Trust are working towards achieving a new HIMSS EMRAM or INFRAM level, what level is this, and when will it be achieved:

Definitions:
Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM) – is an eight-stage model, scored from stages zero (least mature) to seven (most mature). At each stage, organisations need to demonstrate a progressive and eventual removal of paper, higher pervasiveness of use and compliance statistics, and an increasing reliance on automation and clinical decision support.
Infrastructure Adoption Model (INFRAM) – The eight-stage INFRAM measures the maturity of a healthcare facility's IT infrastructure across five areas: mobility, security, collaboration, transport and data centre.

Thank you in advance for your time and I look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

Emmanuel Phillips
