2. Person Held Record

The Person Held Record (HELM) application has recently gone into production with a small number of users able to update their own personal details. This will be rolled-out to more users over the coming weeks. A workshop was held on the future strategy around PHRs with the advent of NHS App and the identification of a small number of other PHRs being rolled in some localities. A briefing note will follow and will be available on our website YHCR.org.

3. Service Management

A number of workshops are being held to develop a clear service management approach to support organisations during each phase of the deployment process and post-live. Further details will be provided in a future update.

4. Population Health Management Kick-Off Meeting

Following a robust procurement exercise the Yorkshire & Humber Care Record team is pleased to announce its intention to award a consortium from Deloitte UK, Google Cloud and Synanetics to help deliver the technology that underpins the population health management capability for the Yorkshire and Humber region at a value of just under £4 million over five years.

Better planning of services and preventing ill health are clear goals of population health management.  Its aims are to improve the health of people by using information to plan care, and to prevent illness.   All organisations that work with personal data abide by strict rules and law set out by the Data Protection Act 2018.  In compliance with applicable regulations, the data collected and used will remain in the hands of the NHS. All data will be encrypted, stored securely in the UK and will not be used for any other purposes beyond population health management.
