  5. Call to spend up to £20m on new electronic patient records

    The supplier of Guernsey's electronic health record systems will provide a further six months of support "in light of the Covid-19 pandemic" as work to bring in a new system continues.

    Support for the current system TRAKCare 2012 is now due to finish on 31 March 2021.

    The Committee for Health and Social Care and the Policy and Resources Committee are asking the States for the authority to spend up to £20m to bring in a replacement system.

    Bringing a new system online could take 18 months.

    The report from the committees said: "The possible impact that any resulting downtime might have on crucial services and patient care would be unacceptable at any point but given the evolving global picture in respect of COVID-19, it is particularly untenable at this time."
