In a limited pilot project in Hillingdon northwest London, the Orchard Practice and the Hillingdon Diabetes Service today went live with a direct interoperability between EMIS Web and SystmOne. This enables GPs at the Orchard Practice using EMIS Web to securely view community nursing data from Hillingdon Diabetes Service who use TPP’s SystmOne. Clinical teams at the diabetes service will also be able to see their patients’ GP records from EMIS Web. At those organisations involved in the pilot, clinicians using each system will only be able to view records with a patient’s point of care consent.
Together SystmOne and EMIS Web host GP records for nearly nine out of ten patients in England, as well as data from community care and secondary care organisations.
