Assessment Discharge and Withdrawal - FHIR API

Support transfer of care from hospital to social services for patients with care and support needs.

Overview

Use this API to support transfer of care from hospital to social services for patients with care and support needs, as described in the Care Act 2014. It enables the exchange of structured information between hospitals and social care organisations.

You can send:

  • hospital assessment notices to inform social services that an assessment of a patient's care and support needs is required
  • hospital discharge notices to confirm a patient's proposed discharge date
  • withdrawal notices to withdraw a previous assessment or discharge notice

You can also send an admissions notice with this API so a hospital can inform social services that a patient has been admitted.

For more details see Assessment Discharge and Withdrawal - FHIR API.
