EMIS, the GP computer system supplier is to enable direct data sharing with all other GP systems.

The company is preparing to sign an agreement with INPS and Microtest to enable direct interoperability between their clinical systems, following on from signing an agreement to do so with TPP

The agreement means that “subject to appropriate information governance, health economies using a mixture of any of the widely-used UK GP systems will be able to deliver seamless patient care 24/7,” says EMIS. “It will enable more efficient working practices for the growing number of GP, community and multidisciplinary provider networks in the NHS.

“Clinicians providing services across many practices can use EMIS Web to ‘call’ a patient’s record directly from any GP system – and send data back into that system, to record the consultation or treatment given. The agreement will include robust and proven security arrangements to ensure patients’ data is safe.”

EMIS managing director Matt Murphy said that the agreement will enable more joined-up and efficient patient care across the country. “It also means that there is no need for GPs within federations to move systems if they are happy with their current one. They will be able to work in partnership with colleagues, whatever the system.”
