PLEASE NOTE: The opportunity to express an interest in becoming a pilot site is now closed.
Are you an innovative organisation that's using a range of Electronic Staff Record (ESR) functionality?
Are you be keen to be involved in developing exciting new enhancements?
If you answered yes to each of these questions, then you might be interested in becoming a pilot organisation.
The future of ESR
A comprehensive programme of development based on requirements identified with ESR user forums is now underway. The programme of development will focus on a number of key themes, grouped into a number of 'work packages'.
The first three of these will be designed to:
- Improve the user interface to ESR self service and learning management.
- Introduce mobile capability, enabling access to ESR via tablets and mobiles.
- Develop a ‘portal page’ that will include key performance indicators, broadcast messages, enable links to other solutions and provide a simple navigation to relevant areas of the solution.
How to become a pilot organisation
The capability within ESR to date has been developed and driven by the NHS and ESR users. This is something that remains critical to the ESR programme.
The ESR team is looking for innovative NHS organisations to participate in pilot activity starting in February 2015 to help shape key developments to ESR. As a pilot organisation you will play a critical part in the development of the exciting enhancements outlined above, and have the opportunity to influence how these enhancements will be deployed into NHS organisations.
Full details of how to express an interest in becoming a pilot site can be found on the ESR knowledge base solution in the document ESR-NHS0207 – User involvement in development and deployment of ESR UI and portal. To access this document you should firstly log into knowledge base before clicking the URL link.
The fully completed documentation (as outlined in the NHS0207 document) should be emailed to email@example.com no later than 2pm on Friday 16 January 2015.
