How can I manage the possible disbenefits of NPfIT?

Even programmes that give a large net benefit can still have a downside that must be identified and managed. A health IT programme with a scope as wide as NPfIT can not hope to deal with all health IT issues. Further, it is often true that the tomorrow’s problems are created by today’s solutions.

Some of the issues which need to be addressed are:

  • The effect of the Registration Authority on operations
  • Gaining the co-operation of suppliers of legacy systems in data migration and interfacing
  • Ensuring the Local Service Provider’s additional services represent value for money
  • Tailoring care to the patient as health IT encourages standardisation
  • Deploying NHS IT staff to best effect post-NPfIT
