The Department of Health has set up a group to oversee the development of electronic patient records to ensure that patient concerns about modernising healthcare are taken into account.
Bringing together patients, healthcare professionals and the public, the Care Record Development Board (CRDB) will replace the previous Public Advisory Board and National Clinical Advisory Board.
The CRDB will commission teams to recommend how IT should be developed to support improved patient care.
"The new board has a vital role to play in improving care for patients," said the health minister, John Hutton, in a statement.
Speaking last month Richard Granger, director general of the NHS IT national programme, acknowledged the concerns about developing electronic records, but said they were unfounded.
"Consider how things happen at the moment: information is moved round by Post-It notes, records left on trolleys," he said.
"We're building a system that will be able to record not only who has amended a record, but who has accessed it."
The CRDB will be chaired by Harry Cayton, Department of Health director for patients and the public.
