We call our service the NHS Data Standards Directory. It launched in public beta on 1 September 2022.
Our aim? To provide a single place to find standards on recording, handling and exchanging data in health and adult social care.
At public beta right now, the main feature is to use the directory to find nationally recognised standards needed for interoperability in England, both those published and coming soon.
You can currently search by areas of interest such as care settings, topics and types of standards.
We are launching with this and looking to learn what features offer the most value to our users to define how we can grow.
As the service is tested, we look forward to providing opportunities to discover more types and forms of standards around data, interoperability and tech, along with clear links to related content. This will save time and effort by bringing together standards from many different health and care bodies into a single place with clear, consistent language and quality.
Meeting the criteria for government websites, the team has worked hard to show that everything it does and plans to do uses best practice, is user-centred and evidence-led from the start.
