Graphnet today became one of the first signatories to techUK’s new Interoperability charter, a series of principles and commitments which recognise the importance of open standards and interoperability in the delivery of better integrated health and care.
The charter has been welcomed by NHS England as a major step forward in breaking down barriers between care settings and delivering significant service transformation.
Inderjit Singh, head of enterprise architecture at NHS England, said: "We support the Interoperability Charter and the need for suppliers to provide open interfaces within and across care settings, and therefore will be directing organisations starting to plan their blueprint for interoperability to the Charter for their supplier partners."
The Charter will also feature in a series of tools being developed by NHS England in conjunction with local and national organisations to support health and care professionals to make decisions on local information sharing solutions.
"Graphnet’s whole business ethos is about interoperability and the delivery of integrated NHS and social care services", said Ian Denley, chairman of Graphnet. "Our CareCentric solution is specifically designed to allow for the sharing of comprehensive clinical information between disciplines and across organisational boundaries. We are very pleased to support techUK’s charter"
CareCentric is fully interoperable, ITK-accredited and connects to most major health and social care systems being used in the UK, including the majority of GP systems.
