Foundation trust pulls out of scheme
A foundation trust has been forced to pull out of the scheme following missing of deadline by the biggest supplier CSC and this has hit the NHS’s electronic record roll out.
The deadline was suppose to be met in 2008 but nothing has been done when it comes to giving Lorenzo software to Penine Care NHS Foundation Trust and now it has stated that it no longer wants to be an early adopter of CSC’s software.
Australia-based iSoft makes the software and CSC had agreed to buy all of the outstanding equity of the company.
The missing of deadlines has been stated to be regrettable and now more options will be looked at by Penine Care, according to a DH spokeswoman. She also added that there were discussions between the DH and the CSC over its contracts with the NHS.
No patient records software package will now be deployed by Pennine Care foundation trust.
A joint statement from the Department of Health and the trust said, “The delays of the mental health functionality within Lorenzo are very regrettable and the recent decision by Pennine Care NHS foundation trust to withdraw from the Lorenzo early adopter program was taken after long and careful consideration by the trust.”
