Safeguarding information management query

Hi All

We are working on supporting the note less and paper lite project which involves scanning the paediatric patient records into our in- house developed, document management repository system .

The question of whether safeguarding information (which includes social and sensitive information) from paper records should be scanned into the above electronic patient record repository system is currently being discussed and has caused a wide debate.

The views range from safeguarding information should be accessible to all clinical staff whereas another perspective is safeguarding information should be restricted to specific staff and accessed via permission based access only .

We would really appreciate your thoughts and experience of this situation please?

Many thanks

Di Davies
