System definitions:

Outpatient e-prescribing - Advanced e-prescribing in use across wards for outpatient care, incorporating specialist prescribing and (ideally) clinical decision support, integrated as part of end-to-end medicines management. This possibly offers the single biggest opportunity for improving patient safety through digitalisation.

Inpatient e-prescribing - Advanced e-prescribing in use across wards for inpatient care, incorporating specialist prescribing and (ideally) clinical decision support, integrated as part of end-to-end medicines management. This possibly offers the single biggest opportunity for improving patient safety through digitalisation.

Order Communications - Electronic ordering communications systems (OCS) are computer applications used to enter diagnostic and therapeutic patient care orders, for example laboratory test requests or prescriptions, and to view test results. The primary aim of the system is to remove most of the current paper-based process for requesting laboratory investigations and for receiving results.

Pharmacy - Pharmacy orders and stock control is managed electronically

Critical care - A critical care information system for Intensive Care Units and high acuity care that enables clinicians to manage critical workflow and care plans for patients.

Thank you for your time.

Yours faithfully,

Miss G Kovacs
