Program Readiness & EPR Implementation

By providing strategic guidance, program readiness and EPR implementation expertise they will support Northern Ireland in becoming the first UK country and second in Western Europe to implement a fully integrated electronic health and care record across acute physical services, mental health, community care and social services. It will replace a patchwork of legacy systems and paper-based processes with a complete picture of a patient’s health and social care.
