3 1. Introduction 1.1 Information Lifecycle Management relates to the policies, processes, practices, services and tools used by an organisation to manage its information through every phase of its existence, from creation through to destruction 1.2 This document sets out an overarching framework for integrating current records management initiatives, as well as recommending new ones. It defines a strategy for improving the quality, availability and effective use of records in the Trust and provides a strategic framework for all records management activities. This will enable overall coordination of all records management activities and ensure alignment with the Trust s Integrated Business Plan and Quality Strategy. 1.3 The Trust has made clear its intention to enhance the electronic patient record into a fully integrated clinical system that covers all aspects of the patient s journey which will represent a significant step forward for the Trust by providing a mechanism for integrating the legacy paperwork with the current and emerging electronic healthcare record. 1.4 The Trust also intends to continue to develop the electronic document management system for Corporate and non-clinical records again providing a mechanism for integrating historical paper based systems with a mechanism for creating and storing electronic information. 1.5 This Strategy should be read in conjunction with the Records Lifecycle Management and Policy. (Policy 08). 2. Purpose and Scope 2.1 This Strategy relates to all clinical and non-clinical records held in any format by the Trust in all phases of the life of information: creation, retention, maintenance, use and eventual disposal or transfer into public archives, i.e.: all administrative records (e.g. human resources, estates, financial and accounting records, notes associated with complaints etc); and all service users health records for all specialties and including records for private patients treated on NHS premises. all research and audit data 2.2 These include records held in all formats, for example: paper records, reports, diaries and registers etc; electronic records; s x-rays and other images; microform (ie microfiche and microfilm); and audio and video tapes, including CD and DVD s artwork 3

4 2.3 An organisation wide Information Lifecycle Strategy is necessary for identifying the resources needed to ensure that records of all types are properly controlled, tracked, accessible and available for use and eventually archived or otherwise disposed of in line with the principles contained within the NHS Records Management Code of Practice. 3. Aims 3.1 The aims of the Trust s Records Management and Information Lifecycle Strategy are to ensure: a systematic and planned approach to records management covering records from creation to eventual disposal; development of records in a digital format to meet the NHS England directive of paper-free patient records by 2018 efficiency and best value through improvements in the quality and flow of information, and greater coordination of records and storage systems; compliance with statutory requirements; provision of staff training for record keeping standards awareness of the importance of records management and the need for responsibility and accountability at all levels; formal procedures for closure, disposal and retention of records; archiving of the Trust s important records or records with an historical value. 4. Key Elements 4.1 The records management and information lifecycle strategy comprises the following key elements: Responsibility and Accountability To provide a clear system of accountability and responsibility for record keeping and use It is important that all individuals in the Trust appreciate the need for responsibility and accountability in the creation, amendment, management, storage of and access to all Trust records. A major target is therefore to have a clear chain of managerial responsibility and accountability for all records created by the Trust. This is the prerequisite for an effectively coordinated records management strategy. This is defined within the Records Lifecycle Management and Policy Record Quality To create and keep records which are adequate, consistent, and relevant for statutory, legal and business requirements Trust records should be accurate and complete, in order to facilitate audit, fulfil the Trust s responsibilities, and protect its legal and other rights. Records should show proof of their validity and authenticity so that any evidence derived from them is clearly credible and authoritative. 4

5 To support the Trust Quality Strategy priorities there also needs to be a focus on the CQC Essential Standard of Quality and Safety Outcome 21. The Trust has committed to progress the ability to audit records electronically and monitor care and record keeping compliance remotely with the introduction of electronic patient records. To be able to provide prompts for staff within the systems to ensure compliance with pathways of care and support complete and timely record keeping through mobile and offline working. To provide compliance reports for staff and managers to support continuous improvement Management To achieve systematic, orderly and consistent creation, retention, appraisal and disposal procedures for records throughout their life cycle Record-keeping systems should be easy to understand, clear, and efficient in terms of minimising staff time and optimising the use of space for storage. Records Management is a discipline which utilises an administrative system to direct and control the creation, version control, distribution, filing, retention, storage and disposal of records, in a way that is administratively and legally sound, whilst at the same time serving the operational needs of the Trust and preserving an appropriate historical record. The future for clinical records involves health and social care services using digital technology to ensure that vital patient related information and clinical decision and support tools can be viewed by an authorised user in a joined up manner in any single instance Security To provide systems which maintain appropriate confidentiality, security and integrity for records in their storage and use Records must be kept securely to protect the confidentiality and authenticity of their contents, and to provide further evidence of their validity in the event of a legal challenge. Records must be held securely to protect them from unauthorised or inadvertent alteration or erasure, access and disclosure are properly controlled and audit trails will track all use and changes. To ensure that records are held in a robust format which remains readable for as long as records are required Access To provide clear and efficient access for employees and others who have a legitimate right of access to Trust records, and ensure compliance with Access to Health Records, Data Protection and Freedom of Information legislation Access is a key part of any records management strategy. Fast, efficient access to records unlocks the information and knowledge they contain. In line with the Francis Inquiry Report patients need to be granted user friendly, real time and retrospective access to read their records and a facility to enter comments. They should be enabled to have a copy of records in a form useable by them, if they wish to have one. 5

6 4.1.6 Audit To audit and measure the implementation of the records management strategy against agreed standards The records of the organisation must be regularly checked against agreed standards to ensure that the records management systems and processes are robust and properly applied within the organisation to ensure that we can be certain our records are fit for purpose and legally sound Training To provide training and guidance on legal and ethical responsibilities and operational good practice for all staff involved in records management Effective records management involves staff at all levels. Training and guidance enables staff to understand and implement policies, and facilitates the efficient implementation of good record keeping practices. Records Management training is mandated for all staff every three years and training is an annual refresh requirement. 5. Implementation 5.1 The action points, in the table below, have been developed from the Trust s Records Lifecycle Management and Policy which requires the following fundamentals to be present: existence of an overall policy statement on how records (including electronic records) are to be managed; endorsement of policy by senior management; dissemination of policy to staff at all levels; provision of corporate mandate for the performance of all records and information functions; organisational commitment to create, keep and manage records which document activities; definition of roles and responsibilities; definition of responsibility of personnel to document actions and decisions in the records and to dispose of obsolete records; provision of framework for supporting appropriate standards, procedures and guidelines; provision of monitoring mechanisms to ascertain compliance with appropriate standards, procedures and guidelines; and review of policy at regular intervals. 6. Review 6.1 This strategy will be reviewed every two years (or sooner if new legislation, codes of practice or national standards are to be introduced). 7.
