The Review of coding for success implementation (Oct 2010) concluded that “…[DH] must continue to… promote the benefits that auto-identification technologies…” and stated that “the Department of Health has this as part of its ongoing work programme to continue to push the requirement for GTINS and encourage NHS to utilise technologies in the procurement process.” But it also acknowledges that this “is a necessarily complex topic that requires considerable investment, effort and co-operation across a variety of sectors and partner organisations to… to benefit patient safety.” The latest guidance is the NHS eProcurement Strategy.
