iSOFT Developments to Help Re-Shape Primary Care in Wales
iSOFT Group Limited (ASX: ISF) has been awarded a contract to work with NHS Wales to roll out the Individual Health Record (IHR) nation-wide. The IHR will make patient information held in iSOFT's GP systems available to local out-of-hours services and in other unscheduled care settings via the Welsh Clinical Portal. Initially, the company will interface its GP systems to the Adastra out-of-hours system, via an iSOFT health record solution specifically customised for Wales.
The solution combines extensions to iSOFT’s primary care practice systems together with iSOFT's integration technology and electronic health record functionality, which provides the central IHR repository and viewing tool for patient records fed from the GP systems. iSOFT is implementing data streaming to transfer data from the practice systems to the repository. The streamed data conforms to the nationally agreed Welsh NHS content and data model standards, which support practice and patient opt in and out preferences, and the exclusion of sensitive patient information.
