Abstract

Electronic Health Records (EHR) have been proposed as a means for managing the technical and organisational complexity that arises in modern healthcare. Different EHR systems are being developed around the world, and within individual countries, different services, such as electronic prescriptions, are being deployed that exploit EHR. We report on a domain analysis of England's developing EHR, as is being implemented in the NHS's National Programme for IT. The analysis, supported by the Feature-Oriented Domain Analysis (FODA) process, ultimately aims to identify commonality and variability across services that use EHR. We summarise the analysis, and describe challenges that we encountered when using FODA to support the analysis.
