Evaluation of SCR to cost £1m

9th April 2010

University College London is set to be paid almost £1m for its evaluations of the Summary Care Record and HealthSpace.

In a written answer in response to a question from Conservative health spokesman Stephen O’Brien, health minister Mike O’Brien said the cost of the first study into the SCR’s pilot sites was £272,000. Further work cost £723,400. The ethnographic study by a team led by Professor Trisha Greenhalgh highlighted a “gap” between the assumptions made about the SCR and its use in practice and confusion over the SCR’s consent model.
