NWAFT goes live

March has seen our first acute trust go live with data feeds into the Shared Care Record giving partners access to NWAFT data for Inpatient & outpatient appointments, Emergency Department (ED) attendances and booking information.

North West Anglia Foundation Trust (NWAFT) is the first of our acute hospitals involved in transforming the way in which we share information across the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough ICS area to start sharing data. This milestone will allow current users across our ICS area to see for the first-time booking information including inpatient and outpatient appointments and Emergency Department attendances at NWAFT.

This means that clinicians and other health and social care staff using the Shared Care Record and delivering patient care across our region will be able to see what hospital appointments their patient has previously had at NWAFT and if, for example, they are waiting for follow up treatment. When all our acute trusts are sharing data, users will then have access to this kind of information for all our hospitals.

This will be invaluable, especially in those circumstances where someone receives their care elsewhere in the area, for instance at another hospital or from mental health/community services or social care outside of their local area. As this digital programme of work gathers pace, we will continue to see new and additional data become available for our partners to access. This will help health and social care staff to better understand a person’s overall needs and improve the way we work together across services to make better decisions about the care and support we can offer.

The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Shared Care Record will electronically connect patient information from GPs, local hospitals, social care, community, and mental health teams across our area, helping to make care better and safer.
