Send an alert for the attention of a Privacy Officer so they can audit whether access to a patient’s data was appropriate, using our HL7 V3 API.
Use this API to send an alert for the attention of a Privacy Officer - also known as Summary Care Record Governance Person (SGP) in community pharmacies - so they can audit proactively whether access to a patient’s data was appropriate.
This provides a general alerting mechanism covering, for example, when a user looks up a patient on the Summary Care Record application (SCRa).
Who can use this API
This API can only be used where there is a legal basis to do so. Make sure you have a valid use case before you go too far with your development.
You must do this before you can go live (see ‘Onboarding’ below).

Summary Care Record - HL7 V3 API - use this API to access a patient's Summary Care Record (SCR) - an electronic record of important patient information, created from GP medical records.
For some activities, the end user must be authorised to perform that activity.
The API itself does not perform any authorisation checks. Rather, the calling system is expected to perform them. The authorisation rules are specified in our national Role Based Access Control (RBAC) database.
