The independent evaluation of the Summary Care Record (SCR) Early Adopters Programme is being carried out by a team from the Department of Primary Care and Population Sciences at University College London, led by Professor Trisha Greenhalgh.
The agreed aims of the evaluation are to assess usability, usage, functionality and impact of the SCR in early adopter sites, and place this in context; to set the stage for the inclusion of further sites and further data sources; to provide timely feedback to stakeholders; and to contribute to the evaluation culture within NHS Connecting for Health and the National Programme for IT.
