An exciting project is underway to develop a shared care record for people accessing health and care services across Derbyshire. Partners across Joined Up Care Derbyshire are in the process of recruiting a technical agency to help us with our ambition of developing a single accessible electronic record for patients and service users.

Historically we have never quite managed to achieve this, but now we have a collective ‘joined-up’ vision of a record that can be easily/securely accessed by clinicians and others involved in a person’s care. The development also needs to greatly improve our system-wide analytical capabilities and understanding of population health data, removing any constraints previously fed by organisational boundaries.

Clearly, this is a significant project and our first major milestone is an initial ‘proof of concept’ by the end of March 2021. A system-wide group is currently meeting weekly to focus our efforts. We will provide regular updates as we move through this exciting and significant enhancement for the people of Derbyshire.
