Working in partnership to become a Digital Care Region
Currently, portions of a citizens health or social care record are scattered across more than 150 different electronic record systems maintained by Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, Cardiff Council, Vale of Glamorgan Council and the third sector. Our aim is is to work in partnership to allow care record to be readily and suitably available to the right care professionals, at the right time, through means which they define. This will mean that health and social care staff can view a more holistic care record in regards to every person they see, leading to the provision of better informed care.
The team are currently creating the change mechanisms for the regional digital initiatives, to be sponsored by the Regional Partnership Board (RPB), and addressing the groundworks (such as global use of the NHS Number across the involved partners) through which record sharing will be possible.
