The positive learnings of NPfIT
The UK's “National Programme for IT” - often referred to as “the world's biggest civil information-technology effort” - is now in the winding-down stage. The project has courted controversy from the start: Common criticisms include that it has neglected to making concrete information about its progress available, has appeared reluctant to be audited and evaluated, has failed to meet key deadlines, and has gone dramatically over budget. There are many learnings in the NPfIT program - not only for the UK. The British Journal of Healthcare Computing spoke to Simon Eccles, medical director of the UK government agency Connecting for Health, Roz Foad, chair of the British Computer Society’s Primary Health care Specialist Group (PHCSG), and Jon Lindberg, the Healthcare Program head of Intellect, the trade association of the UK technology industry.
"The key is national standards, not national systems"
