Yorkshire & Humber Care Record works across the region with all types of health and care providers. In doing so it has meant that we’ve had to build our technical capability to ensure no organisation gets left behind. Our latest connection involves Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust that uses Lorenzo – a widely adopted national clinical system. This is the fourth IT system that has joined the Yorkshire & Humber Care Record with the previous three being:
- The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust using Meditech
- York and Scarborough Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust using their inhouse electronic patient record
- Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust using their home grown’ electronic health record PPM+
These four organisations are now benefitting from clinical and care staff accessing transfer of care documentation that Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) creates when transferring patients to the hospital – saving time, increasing efficiency and improving patient care.
Lee Rickles, Programme Director at Yorkshire & Humber Care Record said, “Our region is diverse with many different clinical and care systems in use, it is our mission to connect them all to ensure we can improve patient care by joining up information. We rely on open data standards to help our integration but the work is complex and tough. I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you to work of all the teams within the care providers, our partners in the Integrated Care Systems, the central YHCR team and our suppliers with particular emphasis to Synanetics who have been instrumental in this development.”
