What have we achieved?
Stage One Pilot: Complete
Stage one of Share2Care was a pilot to connect six sites to the e-Xchange platform. Please see below a list of the organisations that were included within the pilot, this was the first stage in the process towards achieving an integrated care record:
Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust
The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust
The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust
Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen University Teaching Hospital NHS Trust
Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital
Wirral University Teaching Hospital Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
St Helens & Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust
The ILINKS Informatics Transformation Programme was instrumental in the success of the pilot, with its strategic vision to deliver safe and efficient ‘seamless’ care, through the development of a joined up information exchange across health and social services. The programme had already addressed the Information Governance surrounding the Information Sharing Agreements (ISA), which defines the arrangements for processing data across the ILINKS informatics Transformation Programme and sits underneath the overarching ILINKS Information Sharing Framework for all its Partner Organisations. Due to this being in place, it enabled the Share2Care Programme to expedite the pilot.
Stage Two: In Progress
Following the success of stage one of the pilot we are now expanding the Share2Care Programme and to date it includes:
Liverpool Womens NHS Foundation Trust
Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust
Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust
Cheshire Care Record
North West Ambulance Service
Alongside this we have enabled the viewing of GP Primary Care Record, including EPaCCs Electronic Palliative Care Coordination, and as the shared record has evolved we can now give GP’s access to view the record.
