My first observation is that even if we take this success story at face value, it doesn't tell us much about the possibilities of SSOT in an environment such as the UK NHS that is several orders of magnitude more complicated/complex. I'm guessing the Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt 57357 (CCHE) doesn't have as many different types of "truth" to manage as the NHS.
- one type of patient (children)
- one type of condition (cancer)
- a single building
My third observation is that single-source of truth may be a bureaucratic fantasy, but responsible doctors will always strive to get best-truth rather than sole-truth. People in bureaucratic organizations don't always stick to the formal channels, and often have alternative ways of finding out what they need to know. So perhaps the Egyptian doctors at CCHE have managed to preserve alternative sources of information, and the "single source of truth" is merely a bureaucratic illusion.
