Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital goes live with shared care record

Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital went live with their shared care record yesterday, according to a LinkedIn post shared by Norfolk and Waveney ICB, with the ICB noting that the digital team will be present throughout the week to provide training and support to staff members using the system.

Digital health project manager, Sam Browne, added: “If you’re a member of staff at NNUH and have five minutes the project team can talk you through and train you to provide access to the shared care record.”

The go-live follows an update from last month in which the digital team shared how post event message data from integrated care had gone live across authorised organisations, including patient information from 111, out-of-hours and clinical assessment services. 10 organisations gained access to this data through the shared care record, including hospitals, community services and GP practices.

Last month we shared the news that a survey was launched across Norfolk and Waveney with the intention of identifying how much people understand about data and its uses in improving health and care service, with the ICB sharing hopes that by giving local residents the opportunity to contribute to the survey, they can help shape how data is used.
