Transparency within care has become incredibly important – especially in recent years. NHS Digital and NHSX introduced the digital interoperability platform GP Connect to enable sharing of information between all NHS GP services and specialist care centres, using NHS Digital accredited systems. A focus for the NHS is to refine the way in which data is shared and to bridge the gap across primary care services.
“The introduction of GP Connect is a huge step towards delivering interoperability and establishing a connected care environment within health and social care. Nourish customers will be able to review relevant and timely medical notes for people they support, leading to better continuity of care, and resulting in safer, improved outcomes. I look forward to seeing the positive impact this delivers for care teams and those they support.” – Nuno Almeida, Founder and CEO of Nourish Care
Nourish Care have launched our GP Connect integration to customers enabling them to review the GP records and medical notes of those being supported in real time. Contacting a GP when you need them may not always be possible and the introduction to GP Connect will enable care services to make more informed, safer decisions at point of care without waiting.
NHS Digital have created strict guidelines to safeguard the information being shared via GP Connect, and require care providers who wish to use this feature to complete their Data Security Protection Toolkit self-assessment (DSPT) to ensure they meet the standards required.
