What is NHS IM1 – Interface Mechanism?
Interoperability has been something high on the agenda of the NHS for a while now.
With digital technology playing a more prominent role in patient treatment and new models of care emerging, there’s an obvious need for the better sharing of information across different systems.
In recent years, the NHS has placed a huge amount of resources behind embracing innovative technological solutions, as better connected IT systems will help drive improvements in patient care.
One of these innovations is IM1 pairing integration. It’s a tool that enables digital suppliers to talk directly to GP clinical systems, both reading patient data and putting data into the systems.
An interface mechanism enables the seamless communication and exchange of data between various systems across multiple sites. It ensures separate systems remain connected, providing a single point of truth for clinicians trying to access patient records.
