Welcome to new care communities and progress update on deployments underway
New integrated care record goes live across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.
Health and social care professionals across Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent are using a new shared care record that is supporting better and safer care by providing a fuller up-to-date picture of an individual’s care.
Known locally as One Health and Care, the secure digital system is joining up records for 1.1 million residents from 147 GP practices, two acute trusts, one combined community and mental health trust, one mental health trust, two councils and six CCGs.
Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin set to introduce One Health and Care digital shared care record
Newly-formed Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin ICS has selected Graphnet’s shared record and population health platform to support its joined-up approach to planning and providing local health and care services across the county.
Health and care professionals in neighbouring Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent are already using CareCentric to power the region’s shared care record – One Health and Care. This shared care record will be extended to include the organisations and populations of the Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin ICS. One Health and Care will support 1.6 million residents when the extension is complete.
Swindon and Wiltshire signs contract for new integrated care record
Residents and care professionals across Swindon and Wiltshire are set to have a new digital integrated care record to join up care across the region.
CareCentric is already consolidating care records in neighbouring Bath and North East Somerset and this care record will be widened to include the organisations and populations of the Swindon and Wiltshire localities. When the deployment is complete, the shared record will serve a population of 934,000.
The extensive programme will bring together health and care records from 94 general practices, Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust, Wiltshire Health & Care, Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust, Swindon Borough Council, Wiltshire Council, Bath and North East Somerset Council, Medvivo, Virgin Care and Avon & Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust.
Kent and Medway successfully launches the Kent and Medway Care Record (KMCR)
Kent and Medway’s NHS organisations, Kent County Council and Medway Council have rolled out their shared care record – the Kent & Medway Care Record (KMCR) – across the region’s integrated care system.
Powered by Graphnet’s software, the secure system brings together information from a growing number of settings, including four acute hospital trusts, three community-based providers, two mental health services and 255 GP practices. The new record is currently being rolled out to Kent County Council and Medway Council’s children’s and adult’s social care teams.
With a wider range of data available at the point of care, the information shared across the organisations will drive better outcomes and experiences for the county’s 1.8 million citizens.
In the future, Kent and Medway’s citizens will be able to access key information from their own patient records through the KMCR patient portal, giving them the ability to proactively manage and engage with various elements of their care. The planning for this phase of the project is underway, along with the implementation of population health management tools and a frailty module.
