The first joint conference of the RCPsych Informatics Committee and BCS Mental Health SIG has chosen the functionality of ECRs as its focus. Several NHS Trust have implemented enhancements in different areas of ECRs over a decade of using these clinical information systems. There are examples of recording information once that is then readily available when needed in other areas of the ECR, managing workflows to ensure high standards of care that is consistent with NICE guidelines and collecting data from the ECR for statutory reporting.


The conference participants can learn from these examples and ready tips on how the ECR in their local service can be improved. The benefits of these enhancements are in three main areas:

·         reduce burden of duplicate & multiple entries into ECRs;

·         reduce time for data input that frees up time for direct clinical care; and

·         reliable datasets that provide information on the quality of care at the local service level.


It is time that ECRs are used not just as PAS and document management systems


You are welcome to bring your laptops/electronic devices to get hands-on learning in extracting information on your local services from the statutory datasets.
