NHS Camden Clinical Commissioning Group (NHS Camden CCG) was formally created in 2013 to commission the delivery of healthcare in Camden, London. They are clinically led, with the 35 GP practices in Camden making up their membership and working alongside them to make decisions about how best to deliver health and care services across the borough.
The Care Integrated Digital Record (CIDR) project came about to coordinate a complex health system in Camden which was delivering very mixed outcomes. Like many NHS commissioners, NHS Camden CCG faced the challenge of patient information existing in a number of disparate systems across GP records, hospital records, clinical documents, community health records, mental health records, social care records and end of life care records, with no single view available. They developed a business case with providers for a single integrated digital care record system to help care givers deliver the best outcomes for patients.
