Person Centred Software is piloting a scheme whereby London care homes can access a ‘joined-up’ record of people’s health and care information.
Person Centred Software has partnered with OneLondon and NHS London Region Digital Social Care to enable care providers using Person Centred Software’s solutions to connect to the London Care Record.
The London Care Record enables health and care professionals to access a secure view of people's health and care information. Introduced to speed up communication between care professionals, help save lives, and improve the safety and quality of care, the London Care Record, enabled by a network of health information exchanges (HIEs) which join up data safely and securely, incorporates information such as GP records, diagnoses, and allergies.
In theory, access to the London Care Record will enable doctors, nurses, and other health and social care professionals involved in a resident’s care to make better, safer, and more informed decisions.
Andrew Coles, CEO of Person Centred Software, said: “We are incredibly pleased to be working alongside OneLondon, the NHS London Region Digital Social Care team, and our London-based customers, pioneering effective solutions that are accessible to as many health and care professionals as possible. We hope that piloting our latest innovative approach will help to speed up communication between care professionals and help care home staff to provide the most effective care possible. All in all, we see the partnership as a vital step in improving the overall quality of care within the sector while showcasing our confidence in continuing to push the boundaries of care with greater accountability and better outcomes for UK residents.”
