After attending EHI Live 2015 and recognising the ways in which interoperable data can positively affect healthcare organisations and the NHS, Connexica have pledged to support the implementation of interoperability across the country and have signed up to techUK’s Health and Social Care Interoperability Charter. We are committed to ensuring information systems are a key enabler of integrated care.
Integrated care is the ‘Holy Grail’ in health and social care – ‘human-centred’ rather than system-centred services improve the care and wellbeing of citizens, reduce the cost of service delivery and increase productivity in the NHS and local government. Yet there is a lack of integration across care services – interoperability between information systems remains problematic and current approaches do not fit the needs of current policy or the aspirations of a rapidly evolving market.
Connexica are proud to have signed techUK’s Health and Social Care Interoperability Charter to address this challenge. We are committed to ensuring information systems are a key enabler of integrated care.
Greg Richards, Sales & Marketing Director at Connexica, has commented that ‘we are delighted to publicly show our support for the process of interoperability and all that techUK are trying to achieve in healthcare organisations across the country. We look forward to supporting the Five Year Forward View and seeing the sustainable NHS of the future emerge over the next few years.’
As a signatory, Connexica adhere to making information systems more open and easier to integrate, to enable the free-flow of patient information between products, and hence across the care continuum. In doing so, we are making a significant contribution to delivering the new models of integrated care set out in the Five Year Forward View that will radically transform the way patients are treated.
