Sean Brennan had a long career in the NHS in England initially as a Chief Medical Laboratory Scientist. As part of his general management training he left pathology behind to establish a Medical Audit Unit at a busy general hospital in England. He became Information Manager taking responsibility for the Information analysis, Medical Audit and IT staff.
In 1993 Sean was seconded to the Department of Health initially in London then Leeds as Clinical Audit Advisor. In 1996 he was appointed Project Manager for the national Electronic Patient Record (EPR) Project in England a position he held till 1999 when he had a dual role - split between the Health Department of the Scottish Office and the NHS Information Policy Unit of the governments Department of Health in England.
In July 2000, Sean joined Northgate Information Solutions (formerly MDIS) as Head of Healthcare Strategy, experiencing life in the commercial sector.
In 2002 Sean launched Clinical Matrix Limited, a network of consultants engaged in strategy development; business cases; clinical change-management and general informatics projects for the NHS and commercial customers.
Organising and facilitating interactive workshops with groups, large and small, is an area of particular interest and expertise with or without the interactive electronic voting keypads.
Sean believes that the clinical effectiveness/governance agenda will not be successful until clinicians are given real-time clinical IT systems which will then generate the accurate and timely clinical information that they require.
The EPR (now ICRS) however should focus on supporting the clinical care processes and not be simply about creating a historical record on computer.
