Project overview

In 2001, Illuminaries were introduced to The Child Protection Team at Leeds Community Paediatrics, based at St James’ Hospital and Leeds General Infirmary. At that time the two sites were running similar but independent systems built on dBase IV databases. The two databases had identical data structures but were not linked and the codings in use at the two sites had drifted apart over 10 years of operation. These legacy systems could no longer handle the volumes of data and were becoming increasingly unrealisable with frequent restores from backup required. In addition, the St James' team had started to use digital cameras in clinic and individual clinicians had adopted their own naming / cataloguing conventions with no clear link back to the episode.
