New IT network

A new iCSP network has been set up with a focus on helping members to embrace changes in information management requirements.

The CSP information and technology group launch comes as chief health professions officer Karen Middleton recently identified data collection and management as one of the four current challenges for allied health professionals.

IM&T network officer Andrea Peace said: 'She [Ms Middleton] is concerned that not all AHPs are equipped with the right data to successfully drive the case for their service, to support service redesign and to inform the commissioning process. The impact of not having the right information could be that services may not be commissioned, causing the loss of physiotherapy jobs.

'This new network aims to help members deal with these challenges by providing a forum to discuss developing and using datasets to demonstrate the value of physiotherapy and collecting management information to meet the challenges of waiting time initiatives, making a business case and dealing with financial reforms.'
