Description: The purpose of the BT LSP (London) Programme is to support IT enabled transformation in the NHS in London to create a more efficient, joined-up and patient-led health service. The key objectives of the programme are to: - Provide patients with more choice and control over their patient records - Create a health service centred around the patient with health information following patients where they are receiving treatment - Provide health professionals and patients with better access to information and enhance the quality of clinical information so that decisions about patient care and treatment can be made quickly and efficiently based on secure and up-to-date healthcare records. - Help health professionals deliver better patient care by improving the way NHS staff connect with each other across organisational boundaries and provide them with faster, easier access to reliable electronic patient information - transform the way information flows around the health service and help to provide improved and innovative patients services in London. This will be achieved by delivering modern IT systems and services to the NHS in a flexible, efficient and effective way to enable trusts to tailor solutions to support local needs and priorities. This contract lasts until 31 October 2015.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Green
DCA text: Although deployments are complex, significant additional functionality can be deployed before the end of the programme. A Programme Assurance Review occurred in February 2014 (joint between CSC and BT LSP Programmes). Its recommendations were focused on accelerating exit from the contracts, and gaining clarity on the strategy and relative system responsibilities after the LSP contracts expire. Action planning and activity is occurring, with an assurance of action plan expected summer 2014.
