Accelerated deployment of the GM Care Record to improve direct care and provide population health insight across Greater Manchester

30 July 2020

Health and care organisations across Greater Manchester accelerated the deployment of the GM Care Record for all 2.8m citizens to provide frontline professionals with vital information in the fight against Covid-19. Rapid progress was made in weeks rather than months as part of the city region’s Covid-19 digital response plan and collaborative effort.

The GM Care Record uses CareCentric shared record software to collate information held by around 500 different health and care providers such as GP practices, hospitals, community and social care teams to ensure that doctors, nurses and practitioners providing care and treatment can see up to date medical records, medications and test results.

Greater Manchester has also adopted our inbuilt population health platform as part of its Covid-19 response and recovery plans. This platform supports Covid-19 analytics, monitoring and planning using anonymised data.  This will be overseen by an expert group including members of the public, researchers and clinical leaders.
