According to a recent study undertaken at University College London, and reported via the BBC Health news channel today, electronic patient care records will require an “enormous effort” and a “high cost” to fulfil their potential.

The basic patient record will include information on allergies, medication and adverse reactions. The new government backed e-records, but said it was right to review the way they were being rolled out.

The database will contain details of around 50 million patients in England and the IT implementation cost is in the region of £12bn. Researchers also report that early evidence from users suggested benefits were limited.
