NHS PDS Integration
6B provides NHS PDS integration for funded startups and health tech organisations in England, Scotland and Wales.
6B gives healthcare organisations the opportunity to integrate with the national electronic database of patient details so that health tech companies, GPs, pharmacies, consultants and clinical staff can identify patients, check health records and communicate with patients to arrange appointments or to discuss treatment.
There are two APIs that 6B utilises for NHS PDS integration – the PDS HL7 V3 API and the PDS FHIR API.
The older PDS HL7 V3 API helps organisations search for patient details, birth records and creating new patient records, as well as accessing patient data including GP details, pharmacy records and next of kin information.
The newer PDS FHIR API is a RESTful API that gives your health tech organisation quick, easy and secure access to patient details, which may include the verification of an NHS number.
As part of our NHS PDS integration, 6B carries out thorough testing, including sandbox testing, integration testing and production testing.
