Open standards have been developed to simplify integration within health and social care, making it easier to write complementary applications to enhance the functionality of the electronic health record (EHR). Access to these applications allows for more empowered clinicians and engaged citizens, unlocking the potential for important improvements in patient experience and outcomes. To this end, the use of common standards and open application programming interfaces (APIs) is expected to become more regular across NHS providers, as expressed in Matt Hancock’s technology strategy, ‘The Future of Healthcare’.
St James’s Hospital, Ireland’s largest acute hospital, has reached an important milestone in their digital journey over the weekend of Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th October.

There is no doubt about it – providing excellent patient care requires our care teams to have access to the most up-to-date information available.

Among the biggest hospices in London with a large catchment area, St Joseph’s takes referrals from many different sources – be that a GP, hospital or community healthcare professional, or the patient or family themselves.

Of all the approaches leaders can leverage to address these issues, reducing unwarranted clinical variance is receiving increased attention.
