Abstract: The use of information systems in community healthcare has increased greatly over the last ten years. The primary motivation for this development was the need to produce national data sets. However, more recently, it has been recognised that such information systems also have the potential to deliver a wide range of benefits to administrative, managerial and clinical staff. This article describes an innovative research link that has been established between Central Nottinghamshire Healthcare (NHS) Trust and The Business School at Loughborough University that intends to provide independent research studying the effects of information systems on community trusts. The first stage of the research is a survey of community trusts in England and Wales studying the uptake and application of community information systems. Preliminary results of the survey indicate that the aim of delivering a wide range of benefits to staff is now being addressed in addition to the production of the national data sets.
