Coordinate My Care has been integrated with the NHS national records locator, the provider has confirmed.
The move puts the 72,000 Londoners with existing Coordinate My Care (CMC) urgent care plans connected to all emergency care services across England.
It allows emergency services across the country to access your CMC urgent care plan in case a person needs care outside their local area.
CMC said it was a big step forward in achieving its plan to be a national urgent care planning service.
CMC’s urgent care plans communicate a patient’s information in all settings, from their home to the GP, hospitals and ambulance services.
Professor Julia Riley, head of the Coordinate My Care clinic, said: “This is the future. The future is patient-centered care, based on digital technology that allows for coordinated and truly fluid care wherever it is.
“This development means a lot to the CMC team who have worked tirelessly to coordinate high quality care for patients. However, it is even more important for the patients we support and would like to thank all involved to help make this happen.
“Our integration with the LRN will surely increase the positive outcomes of patients and reduce inadequate hospital admissions across the country. The future of the NHS is to provide more cohesive, patient-centered care. “
The South London Health Innovation Network (HIN) recently won £ 200,000 to deploy Coordinate My Care (CMC) to ensure that health and social care professionals have access to urgent patient care plans.
The HIN is working closely with colleagues from the NHS in London to identify a project in each of the five areas of sustainability and transformation (STP) to accelerate the adoption of CMCs to suit local priorities.
The scheme will fund local physicians to focus on advocating for CMC with their clinical colleagues and colleagues with the goal of incorporating CMC into local care pathways.
