Bristol Informatics Strategy

The challenge

Bristol Community Health (BCH) CIC asked us to support preparation of a new informatics strategy because: Patients and staff experienced difficulties & dissatisfaction with informatics services and solutions, causing inefficient working and affecting its ability to provide the best care for its patients; BCH want to be a technologically advanced organisation, using good practice solutions particularly regarding mobile working and assistive technologies; The current main clinical system arrangements (RiO) expires in 2015 and BCH wanted to take the opportunity to think more widely about its operations and future ways of working.
