Carl Reynolds On The Power Of Information

Carl Reynalds | eHealth Insider | July 4, 2012

Junior doctor and open source enthusiast Carl Reynolds thinks there are some good things about the latest NHS information strategy; but he has some concerns as well.

Last month saw the publication of the eagerly awaited NHS information strategy. With the ‘Liberating the NHS’ reforms now taking shape on the ground, the document may well be the final word on IT from the Department of Health.

So it was with considerable interest that I finally sat down to read ‘The Power of Information.’

Some things are good

The document sets out a ten-year framework that aims to be high-level and focussed on the needs of NHS IT users.
