MSc Information Technology dissertation - Electronic Booking Service


Ref: ict0005

This MSc dissertation attempts to look into the Electronic Booking Service (EBS) element of a national modernisation programme of the NHS. In recent years, government involved IT projects have not had any significant nor impressive outcome. The NHS for many years has been constantly criticised for some of its poor services. In terms of medical diagnostics, therapeutics and research, it excels amongst many other healthcare services in the world. However, on the measure of efficiency, it scores poorly. The Labour government decided to reform the NHS using Information Technology. A sum of £6 billion has been invested into the many projects of the Modernisation Programme.
