Description: The South Acute Programme was established in Autumn 2011 to deliver clinical systems for Acute providers in the South of England. The systems, procured locally by providers through this programme, will replace outdated legacy systems and manual processes for the capture of clinical information, enabling a number of benefits to providers, including; reducing the reliance on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. Providers are working in 6 collaborative groups, each with their own scope, in order to procure and implement systems aligned to local informatics strategy and priorities, with DH providing some central funding to support these local investments. The service/system scope of each collaborative comprises: Group A - Electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration (EPMA); Group B - Electronic Document Management and a Clinical Portal; Group C - Community-wide ePrescribing and a clinical hub; Group D - An enhanced Patient Administration System (PAS) and a Maternity system; Group E - An Integrated Clinical Information System; and Group F - Clinical Document Management.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Green
DCA text: The MPA RAG rating was Amber/Green at Q2 2014. The programme achieved an Amber/Green rating due primarily to the lack of clear governance arrangements at that time. In response to the recommendations the programme team have established a robust programme governance model and, as such, five of the six recommendations have now been closed. The remaining recommendation, for Trusts to create clear benefits realisation plans, is currently being addressed by Trusts with support from the programme team, as they prepare their Full Business Cases and prepare for deployment. Completion of this would help support a path to a Green delivery confidence.
Start date: 2011-11-01
End date: 2017-06-27
Schedule text: The programme is progressing broadly as planned and the programme team is working closely with all collaborative groups in order to ensure that they submit and gain approval for their Full Business Cases in line with their expectations for signing contracts. There has been a delay to the original programme timescales due primarily to the approvals process for the Outline Business Case taking longer than anticipated, and Trusts taking longer than anticipated to launch their procurements.
Baseline: £40.91m
Forecast: £11.05m
Variance: -73.00%
Variance text: The variation between the budget and forecast figures for 2014/15 are attributable to delays since the approval of the Outline Business Case, from which the figures above are taken. Forecast costs have been re-profiled in line with current plans for Full Business Case approval, contract signature and implementation.
Whole Life Cost: £189.06m
WLCost text: The budgeted Whole Life Costs are based on the Outline Business Case. The Whole Life Costs will be refined when all collaborative Full Business Cases have been approved, and all costs are known. The programme is funded by a mixture of central funding (including NHS England programme revenue and Health and Social Care Information Centre programme admin costs) and local funding (NHS Trust costs).
