Graphnet has successfully completed the integration of its CareCentric software suite with Healthcare Gateway Ltd’s (HGL) MIG.
The development means that users of Graphnet’s clinical systems and portals can get real-time access to clinical data held in GP solutions developed by INPS and EMIS. This is in addition to the extracted GP data stored in the CareCentric data store.
The data will be displayed within Graphnet’s CareCentric electronic shared care record and combined with real-time acute, community, mental health and social care data already available through CareCentric.
This latest integration gives a hospital consultant with the appropriate consent and permissions, for example, secure and immediate access to information recorded at the GP practice just minutes earlier.
Clinical data available includes summary, problem and diagnosis views of the patient record. Details of medication, risks and warnings, procedures, investigations, blood pressure examinations, events (including encounters, admissions and referrals), and patient demographics are also available.
Peter Anderson, managing director at HGL, said: “We are delighted that Graphnet has integrated with the MIG and that we can deliver additional interoperability options to their user base. The MIG is all about linking providers and the combination of MIG and CareCentric functionality is a major step forward for both products.”
Andy Bratt, Graphnet’s managing director, explained that CareCentric was specifically designed to allow the NHS, local government and other agencies to share data across their existing IT systems. “Integration with the MIG was a natural step for us. It has proved to be a straightforward and efficient process and we are very pleased with the result.”
