Document naming standard

This project from the RCP's Health Informatics Unit (HIU) will create a new document naming standard to ensure digital health records are appropriately named for safe and effective retrieval within the health and social setting, as well as their transfer across all care settings.

What we are doing

We are developing a single national standard and guidance for the naming of digital health and social care documents, which recognises the existing Scottish and international standards already in use.

This project has been commissioned by the Professional Record Standards Body (PRSB). Standards will be available to view on the PRSB website
