The Shared Care Record will be a new electronic system which will bring together key information about individuals requiring care into one place. Using existing point of care systems within the NHS, Kent County Council and Medway Council, it will provide an up to date overview of any patient and their history. This will enable health and social care staff to make the best decisions with patients about their care.
The Business Services Centre, part of Kent County Council is working on behalf of the STP to develop the system requirements and get ready to procure the system.
We are excited to be working in partnership with stakeholders across the STP towards a solution which will transform the way that patient information is accessed to provide professionals with a full, up to date overview of all health and care interventions. We will be working with a wide range of health and social care professionals and patient representatives to develop a system that works effectively.
The Project Director Evelyn White, who has a broad and deep range of experience across the health and social care sector said:
“We are excited to be leading the work to develop a system that will make a real difference in improving care and outcomes for patients and service users across the health and social care system on behalf of the STP.”
