There was a lot of negativity around CPAS
We needed a CPAS user group that was proactive in improving the functionality, data quality and usefulness of the system.
The group needed to comprise of clinicians, clinical leads, business management, IT CPAS back office, IT service desk , IT training, reporting and data quality.
5. How I saw the issues? Traditional culture where IT has never before been central to a clinician’s work
Arrived as ‘something extra to do’
‘Feeding the Beast’
