More about Professor John New

John has had a long interest in how the electronic medical record can be better used to support clinical care, quality improvement and research. He then helped develop the Salford Integrated Record, to replace manual entry of data from primary care into a diabetes register maintained at the hospital. This showed that it was possible to combine primary and secondary care information, and us this to enhance clinical care. This was so successful the service was rolled out to all long term conditions and then to the whole of Salford.
