Health and care professionals experience time pressures in gathering a patient’s information, particularly when multiple phone calls, faxes and IT systems are involved. Implementing an Digital Care Record can help to remove some of these barriers to care. Orion Health is the UK’s largest provider of IDCR’s (also know as clinical portals); a system which can integrate a citizen’s health and care data from disparate systems across a geography into a single view.
Moving away from paper records, which can only be stored in one place and viewed by one person at a time, Orion Health’s Digital Care Record provides seamless data integration and visualisation. This supports professionals across the health and care economy encompassing primary care, secondary care, mental health, social care, pharmacy, out of hours and local councils to make more informed decisions, in a shorter time and provide better patient outcomes.
Below are a range of scenarios exploring the benefits of an IDCR for many health and care professionals including: community midwives, elderly care, pharmacists, social workers and consultants.
