Salford hosts shared health record across Manchester
NHS England has announced that Greater Manchester will become a Local Health and Care Record Exemplar (LHCRE) to establish an integrated health and care record across a large population.
Once complete, the programme will integrate information from 472 practices, 10 acute trusts, 10 councils, three mental health trusts, three out of hours providers and six community providers.
The shared care record will be overseen by a team of experts hosted by Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, which is a Global Digital Exemplar.
Sir David Dalton, Chief Executive of Salford Royal and the Northern Care Alliance NHS Group said: “We are delighted to be able to leverage the expertise from Salford’s global digital exemplar and to work with partners across Greater Manchester to deliver the country’s foremost digital connectivity across the city region”.
