Abstract

New information technologies are being introduced in the UK National Health Service as resources for the acquisition of clinical knowledge. These are forcing working practices to adapt and are affecting and challenging perceived roles, relationships and expectations of patients and health professionals alike. Effective ways to use nonpersonal information in healthcare was a two-day workshop hosted by UCL Interaction Centre at University College London intended to provide a forum for practioners and researchers working in the area of clinical health information delivery to come together to discuss access to health information, and to consider how the various challenges and opportunities relating to electronic information provision can be managed most effectively. For the first day of the workshop, the theme for presentations and discussion was information provision for and access by health professionals. Talks were given by Julius Weinberg (City University, London), Roger Slack (University of Edinburgh) and Anne Adams (University College London). The theme for the second day was information provision and access by patients. Presentations were given by Mig Muller (NHS Direct), Jane Wilson (Whittington Hospital and Medi-notes), Andrew Herxheimer (University of Oxford) and Henry Potts (University College London). On both days, delegates formed into three groups for breakout sessions in which they discussed and reported back on: information quality and use, social and organisational context, and user requirements and training in relation to the respective daily theme (health practitioners/patients). This report summerises each of the presentations and the reports by the breakout groups.
