What is the review about?

​In 2005, the Health and Social Services Department (HSSD) commenced a programme of work to update and integrate their health and social care ICT systems.  The States originally allocated £12m for the programme. The Committee is considering whether the programme has been executed in accordance with best practice and whether the ICR system requirements have been delivered on time and within budget.  It will also consider the value for money achieved by the programme.
