Coventry and Warwickshire take steps towards more integrated care with electronic patient records system


Patients’ health and care records in Coventry and Warwickshire will soon be available electronically to authorised health and social care practitioners across the region. Hospital medical staff, paramedics and GPs will all be able to access the same crucial information about patients, including details of allergies and current medications, bringing potentially life-saving benefits.

Dr Alec Price-Forbes, Chief Clinical Information Officer (CCIO) for Coventry and Warwickshire Health and Care Partnership says: “By connecting the information which is held by different providers of health and care services, we will be able to improve the quality, and outcomes for those being cared for across Coventry and Warwickshire. This is the first exciting step towards delivering the technology to enable more integrated care across our region, with the long-term aim of improving the health and well-being of our whole community.”

The shared care record will support new models of care as part of the delivery of the integrated health and social care services that are central to the NHS Long Term Plan.

The Coventry and Warwickshire Integrated Care Record programme will be rolled out across the local health and care economy during Autumn 2020.
