Description: The Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) programme will provide the successor to the N3 network and will establish a reliable, safe and efficient way for health and social care organisations to exchange information from 2017 onwards.
DCA (RAG) Amber/Red
DCA text: The HSCN Programme has undergone a number of internal and external reviews during 2016/17 confirming the amber/red status and concluding that the programme must go ahead and is deliverable. The amber/red status is a reflection of previous delays with strong progress noted in successive Project Assessment Review and Cabinet Office stocktake activity. The programme has an agreed strategic direction and technical and operational design, with focus now on executing the build and buy activities required to deliver the live HSCN infrastructure required to start migration. In parallel a Full Business Case is being developed for approval in late 2016.
Start date 2012-03-29
End date 2020-04-01
Schedule text Whilst the programme has been subject to some historic delays recent progress means that the programme remains on track to deliver an approved Full Business Case during 2016 and exit the N3 contract on 31 March 2017.
