Economies of Scale – Greater volumes of transactions allow us to have greater specialisation and investment in systems.

Reduction in waiting lists  – The system can assist in optimising patients throughout to driving down waiting lists.

Better understanding the cost of conditions and treatments  – The actual costs of all conditions and treatments is collected in the system by patient, providing the core data required to assess the cost effectiveness of different treatment methods.

Enhanced financial control  – A real-time information on treatment costs with strong financial controls, regarding the approval of treatment orders and supplier invoices.

Rapid Access To Clinical Information – Information on conditions, treatments, prescriptions, trends and costs can be immediately accessed from the electronic patient record.

Portable Electronic Patient Care Record  Information can be accessed anywhere, any time by clinicians and patients and the data is easily transported between other health systems.

Identification – The information available within the electronic patient record means that it is simple to validate a patients identity together with all other clinical, none clinical and relatives involved in their care.

Elimination of duplication – The need to retype or manually re-enter the relevant data onto forms or other systems is removed.

Accuracy – A well-maintained single repository of information ensures that all documents and reports produced from the systems are accurate and auditable .
 
Security – Access to all areas of the system  is controlled through high levels of security, which not only limits access to the system but also what the user is allowed to see and do.
