New NHS computer system rolled out across Yorkshire

  • Comment

A new computer system designed for use by healthcare professionals will be taken up by more than half the GP practices in NHS Yorkshire and the Humber by the end of the financial year, according to a report.

A board paper presented to the local strategic health authority said ‘progress has been excellent’ on the deployment of SystmOne - provided by software company TPP and deployed as one of the accredited systems in the Government’s NHS IT programme.

But the report warned that the delivery of a single shared electronic patient record system, known as Lorenzo, would be significantly delayed or may not happen at all.

Report author and chief information officer at the health authority, Phil Molyneux, said Lorenzo and SystmOne had been arranged through a renegotiated contract with local service provider CSC.

SystmOne will be fully integrated into Lorenzo, and Lorenzo Releases 3 and 4 will include primary and community functionality, he explained.

His report said: ‘The new contract means the NHS in Yorkshire and the Humber will be able to build on the investment that has already been made in TPP SystmOne in this region, for the duration of the contract.’
