Hampshire Health Record Commended in EHI Awards
10th October 2014
The Hampshire Health Record has been singled out for special commendation at a prestigious industry awards ceremony.
The HHR won a silver prize in last night’s E-Health Insider awards, picking up a rare ‘special commendation’ from the judges in the category ‘best use of IT to support integrated healthcare services‘.
Built using Graphnet’s CareCentric software, the HHR shares information on nearly two million patients across Hampshire.
Amir Mehrkar, GP and chief clinical information officer for the HHR at NHS South CSU, commented: “This is national recognition at the highest level of Hampshire’s achievements in information sharing to deliver better care for our patients. All Hampshire stakeholders should feel proud of their collaborative work.”
The HHR has data feeds from general practice and other health and social care providers in many settings across the county. In all, 170 Hampshire GP practices are now signed up to use the system and to upload their data to it. In addition data is contributed from three acute Trusts, two mental health and community Trusts and three councils.
