System DesignThe policy
design for some aspects of the futureorganisation is incomplete
(e.g. PHS White paper dueDec; future design of Informatics comes too late to feed intooverall system definition/ architecture, to feed into the HealthBill). So risk that Bill proceeds on basis of incomplete /flaweddesign.
ocy eams, ncung , nee o worclosely with overall system design toensure policy and future design is aligned,and to ensure high level systemarchitecture design has reached a pointthat will provide a level of clarity andconfidence on design before Bill proceeds.Plan for further involvement in design andtesting with wider group of practitioners
As the Bill proceeds through Parliamentary stages,amendments are made which have unforeseenconsequences for the system, with possible impact on costsor performance of the system.
Use design process to surface outstandingissues, so they can be mitigated.
Design work proceeds without the confirmation of costenvelopes for each organisation
which means that thefuture system design is signed off, and the Bill proceeds,without assurance that the whole system is affordable. Oneexample of area where system could be more costly is if GPConsortia makes use of private sector organisations/staffwhich adds costs to the overall system
Finance is developing overall costenvelopes by the end of October to feedinto the system architecture design work,and ensure individual organisations canoperate within its cost envelope. Key areaof focus is commissioning board and GPconsortia.
implementation begin before adequateplanning
has been done about how the system in transitionwill need to operate. For example, who has control offunding when the SHA operates in parallel with the NHS CB?And who is responsible for commissioning when both PCTsand GP Consortia are in place?
Work underway to develop robustimplementation strategy to work throughthese issues, to inform exact sequencingfor implementation, with proposed ASE-style event end October
