WEBINAR: Shared care records – Reviewing the progress and planning next steps

Tuesday 14 October 2021 – 10.30am-11.15am

The government target was for all areas of England to have a shared health and social care record in place by September 2021. Such setups – which make it possible for professionals across organisations to see the same information about a patient – become particularly important in the context of the impending statutory basis of integrated care systems. Not to mention, of course, in the continuing context of the pandemic.

So how have shared care systems progressed up to this point? And, importantly, how do they need to develop from here to offer maximum benefits to the health and care sector and those it serves? How can they tie to effective population health management approaches, or to increased use of data analytics?

This HSJ webinar, run in association with Orion Health, will bring together a small panel of experts to discuss these questions.
