The service will make patient medical information available to clinicians when and where they need it leading to improvements in the care they're able to provide.
The GP Connect programme is supporting the development of products which will enable different systems to communicate so that clinicians in different care settings can:
- view a patient’s GP practice record with Access Record: HTML
- manage GP appointments with Appointment Management
- import or download data on a patient’s medicines and allergies with Access Record: Structured
This will save time for clinicians, and provide better, more convenient care for patients. It will also help meet targets under NHS England’s Improving Access To General Practice programme.
The programme supports Extended Access Providers, will support the creation of Primary Care Networks and the Local Health Care Record Exemplar approaches highlighted in the NHS 10-year plan.
