Use this API to send bowel cancer screening test results from the screening programme's system to GP practices, including bowel scope screening and fecal occult blood test (FOBT) results.
It's designed for the transmission of structured bowel cancer screening results from screening systems to primary care GP systems, using UN/EDIFACT based messages.
Also known as NHS004 messages, these are a simpler version of the NHS003 messages specified in the Pathology EDIFACT v1.003 Standard but with the changes specified in 'Electronic GP Communication Requirements for GPSoC Software Suppliers Draft', under 'Additional guidance' below.
Bowel cancer screening NHS004 messages are almost the same as pathology NHS003 messages except they are much simpler in structure, with a single SNOMED code and 5 result values.
Before you begin any development work using this API, contact us to discuss your best options.
