"Critics of interoperability argue that it is too complicated to deliver and doesn’t work. Yet they are surrounded by multiple examples of successful projects – many of them, such as GP Links, QMAS, Pathology Links and electronic requesting – part and parcel of everyday clinical life.

Perhaps the most high-profile example is GP2GP electronic record transfer – surely the biggest achievement of the NPfIT to date?" (Sean Ridell, EMIS Healthcare Managing Director)
