Introducing GP Connect: Access Record (HTML) will allow non-clinical staff filtered access to the GP record, supporting Health and Social Care providers to deliver the most safe and effective care.
In April 2022, Nourish Care extended access to GP Connect to its customers, and now non-clinical roles as well as Registered Nurses can access GP records and medical notes for the people they support within Nourish. The primary goal is to support staff in delivering care safely by ensuring they have the most up-to-date information to hand. A focus for the NHS is to refine the way data is shared across care settings and to bridge the gap between primary and social care services.
The filtered view for non-clinical staff includes authorised access to rich information such as allergies and adverse reactions, plus medications and immunisations for the people they support. They will also be able to view the last three encounters with their GP.
Nuno Almeida, Founder and CEO of Nourish Care said, “The introduction of GP Connect is a huge step towards delivering interoperability and establishing a connected care environment within health and social care. Nourish customers will be able to review relevant and timely medical notes for people they support, leading to better continuity of care, resulting in safer, improved outcomes. I look forward to seeing the positive impact this delivers for care teams and those they support.”
Kefas Jeshua, a Nourish customer from Peverel Court said, “By using GP Connect we now have a better understanding of our resident’s needs. Accessing the GP record helps us to understand the ‘what’ and the ‘why’ around an individual’s needs. If there are concerns regarding medication, we can review the record and make more informed decisions. GP Connect is particularly helpful when admitting a new resident, by having this information at hand we can provide the best possible care from the start. Before GP Connect we would wait for an email or phone call from the GP. Now we can access the relevant information instantly, which is great!”
