Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Choose and Book, is an E-Booking software application which has been introduced to the National Health Service in England. It enables patients needing an outpatient appointment to choose which hospital they are referred to by their general practitioner, and to book a convenient date and time for their appointment. Originally designed simply as an electronic booking system, Choose and Book was developed to enable patient hospital choice. This application has been progressively introduced into the NHS from 2005 onwards. It was procured as part of the National Programme for IT in 2003. The contract was awarded to Schlumberger Limited's Sema division just before its acquisition by Atos Origin. The software is based on Cerner Corporation's Millennium e-Booking software. Surgery where immediate treatment is required is not in the remit of Choose and Book since such patients' needs bypass any longer-term queuing systems.show more
