Emlyn Jones, Technical Lead, Connecting Care.

The Connecting Care Partnership in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire provides a shared care record covering a population of more than 1 million. Since go-live in 2013, new functionality and data sets have been added over time, including enabling staff working with homeless and vulnerable people to see if they have a prescription for Opioid Substitution Therapy (OST) drugs. This was achieved through the first known use use of the Care Connect APIs developed jointly by NHS Digital and INTEROPen. Emlyn Jones gave an update at our UK & Ireland Customer Conference in November 2018.
