Paperless NHS by 2015?

10th October 2012

The NHS Commissioning Board national director of patients and information Tim Kelsey has said the health service should be paperless by the end of 2015.

Addressing the Healthcare Efficiency Through Technology Expo, he said the first government mandate issued to the NHS CB would contain a commitment to a “paperless NHS”. He suggested that by the end of 2015 there would be no more referral letters or lost records because "we won’t have paper anymore in the health service".
