Key issues now emerging from evaluation sessions are about the need to improve the overall healthcare process as it spans organisations. This requires whole-system work at the level of the local health community, ie at a level above that of the EHR Demonstrator as currently constructed. It has therefore been decided to bring our extended evaluation programme to a close and re-focus our work on new objectives better matched to this whole-system goal. Our Evaluation Report to be published in October will mark the formal closure of the initial phase of our ERDIP work.

Future objectives for which we have now been awarded funding by the NHSIA include:
a
) demonstrating the feasibility of using the EHR as a content provider within the national Health Records Infrastructure;
b) further investigation of EHR requirements in key areas such as confidentiality and data quality ; and
c) clarification of the benefits and risks associated with ICRS.
