PCTI has taken its patient access demonstrator to recent trade shows and seen it featured in NHS England's AppZone. It is now working with GPs to develop the product, which is intended to enable GPs to share letters and other documents easily with patients, and to add leaflets and other supportive materials from Docman BackOffice. The idea is to reduce some of the administrative, legal and ethical barriers to giving patients access to their records in line with government targets.17 April 2013
GPs are receiving clinical letters directly into their medical records from Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust via the Medical Interoperability Gateway. Medisec software’s clinical correspondence system has supported the delivery of electronically-signed hospital letters into GP practice software systems using Healthcare Gateway Limited’s MIG. The hospital will be extending a paperless service for all types of clinical correspondence.
