April 02, 2019 / Leontina Postelnicu
Cerner has been selected as the supplier that will provide the technology needed to connect patient information across the North East and North Cumbria in England in a regional record sharing project called the Great North Care Record. The partnership looks at the information exchange component of the initiative, and the first organisations involved are expected to go live in the autumn of this year. The Great North Care Record project has been created through a collaboration between local NHS organisations and the government-funded Connected Health Cities programme. The aim is to help hospitals, GPs, social care, mental health, community and ambulance services in the region share the information they need to provide care for their patients, such as medication history, test results and allergies. The first phase of the initiative saw the introduction of the Medical Interoperability Gateway and the Information Sharing Gateway.
