The Irish Times writes: The Royal College of Physicians of Ireland (RCPI) has called for the full implementation of electronic health records, claiming such a move would help to protect patient privacy. A report published by the organisation last year called for the full implementation of individual health identifier and electronic health records, which it said was “essential to delivering safe, quality and effective care to patients when important patient data in the secondary and tertiary care settings is contained in multiple, often paper-based documents”.
