Description: CSC LSP Delivery Programme is the programme responsible for the implementation of digital health care records service in the North, Midlands and East of England. This programme is being delivered by CSC (Computer Sciences Corporation) as the Local Service Provider (LSP). The CSC contract consists of a number of Strategic Products aimed at different healthcare professionals working across multiple care settings. Where these Strategic Products were not sufficiently developed to provide all of the required functionality and benefits associated with them at the time required for deployment, a number of Interim Products were made available to NHS organisations for implementation. The Products will replace outdated legacy systems and manual processes for the capture of clinical information, enabling a number of benefits to providers, including; reducing the reliance on paper based process, improving safety of care and increasing operational efficiency and effectiveness. These Strategic and Interim Products will remain for the duration of the contract: * Strategic Products: • Lorenzo • TPP SystmOne • Medusa Emergency Care System (ECS) * Interim Products: • iPatient Manager (iPM) • iClinical Manager (iCM) • Evolution Maternity • HSW Child Health • Liquidlogic Single Assessment Process (SAP) • Surgical Interventions (ORMIS Theatres and IMS Instrument Tracking) The majority of this contract lasts until 7 July 2016.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: 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.
Start date: 2004-04-01
End date: 2016-07-31
Schedule text: No changes to the schedule. The contract renegotiation and Full Business Case approval are now complete. The three planned Lorenzo electronic patient record deployments planned for Q4 have now occurred.
Baseline: £297.35m
Forecast: £224.62m
Variance: -24.46%
Variance text: Budget costs relate to the previously approved business case (2008/09) at time of submission of the data. They include both Central and Local NHS costs. Forecast figures are based on more recent data, but are still subject to change in future GMPP returns when the Revised Project Agreement (RPA) will have been agreed, and a refreshed business case approved. This will also provide a revised set of budget costs (the RPA was agreed in October 2013, and the refreshed Full Business Case was subsequently approved in January 2014). Variance is due to the delay in deployment of the Lorenzo solution compared to the plan defined under the previously approved business case.
Whole Life Cost: £5,636.19m
WLCost text: The finance figures are based on the predicted spend (both in DH and NHS) against the deployment volumes and unit costs in the previously agreed business case. As the anticipated volume of deployments has not been achieved, the figures are significantly higher than the actual spend. Following agreement of the Revised Project Agreement (RPA) with CSC, a refreshed Full Business Case was approved. This significantly reduced the whole life costs, and also revised the budget position.
