Felix Vaal – project support officer
Imperial College Healthcare Trust


Felix Vaal managed the pilot roll-out of clinical documentation and e-prescribing to two specialities, and developed and implemented a successful and cost-effective end-user support model for largescale deployments of new IT systems in the process. This enabled lessons to be learned for the rest of the organisation, and information packs to be prepared for wards and departments due to implement electronic working.
