New records standards body launched – eHealth Insider – 17 April 2013

“A major new Professional Records Standards Body has been launched to promote the development of health and care records based on common record keeping standards.

The PRSB, which is intended to become the primary source of knowledge and expertise on health and social care record keeping standards, is backed by nearly all the royal medical colleges.

The new body will be officially launched at a joint Royal College of Physicians / CCIO Leaders Network session at HC2013 in Birmingham on Wednesday.

A central aim of the PRSB will be to make sure that the requirements of those who provide and receive care can be fully expressed in health and social care records.

It will also provide guidance for those working on technical implementation of the standards, and on their maintenance.”
