The Oxygen app provided secure access to the following data sets at the point of need, to help inform clinical decisions:
- Personal Demographics Service (PDS)
- Summary Care Record (SCR)
- Child Protection–Information Sharing (CP-IS)
The Oxygen app used a proof of concept access and authentication solution that provided secure and authorised access for mobile devices. This approach removed the need to physically authenticate using an NHS Smartcard. NHS Digital conducted a 3 month pilot with 50 clinicians using the Oxygen app in an acute hospital, community services and a mental health trust. This case study summarises the experiences of pharmacists using the Oxygen app in the acute hospital.
