SystmOne Integration Partner

We will consult with your team as well as liaising with TPP and NHS Digital to ensure your integration is compliant, effective and economical. Above all we will ensure your integration fulfils functions that allow for secure access to patient data.

SystmOne IM1 Pairing Integration

IM1 pairing is the most common integration with SystmOne. An IM1 integration allows for reading patient information, extracting information in bulk and entering data into SystmOne.

An interface mechanism must be provided firstly to support integration for clinical decision making, appointments and more in a framework that complies with authority requirements.

Before the pairing process can begin, a Supplier Conformance Assessment List (SCAL) must be properly completed and submitted to NHS Digital’s IM1 team.

6B will help you submit your application, which needs to be reviewed for compatibility with the SystmOne API.

It is important to provide details of your product strategy and what you intend your product to achieve, and 6B’s technical staff can help you frame the SCAL so that as much of your functionality can be approved of as possible.

The SCAL should include details of clinical use cases in the initiation phase of the assurance process flow, where your product will be assessed to ensure it is viable.

A Model Interface Licence (MIL) then needs to be executed to cover your use of SystmOne, and when this has been arranged with our help, you will be given access to a test environment where your solution can be developed alongside 6B’s intimate knowledge of supplier guidance and documentation.

SystmOne test phases

At the unsupported test phase, we help you develop your product or mobile app with SystmOne and the Pairing and Integration Pack (PIP). At this stage, any issues that cannot be resolved are forwarded to the IM1 team, who will work with SystmOne to offer clarification on how to fix any problems.

Once development has been completed in collaboration between 6B and your project, we can request access to the supported test phase through the full submission of the SCAL. 6B will also help you to work with SystmOne to agree on the right assurance approach, keeping IM1 up to date with all development.

6B is available for SystmOne integration to get your product live. The final phases include:

SystmOne assurance – The SCAL is agreed with SystmOne, who will then submit the final SCAL to NHS Digital. When a Recommendation to Connect Notice (RTCN) is issued by NHS Digital, SystmOne will come up with a plan to connect within five working days.

Witness testing – Throughout this process, test evidence is agreed or a witness test is undertaken, with 6B available for integration assistance throughout this entire process.

When assurance is accepted, the MIL can be uplifted so that the assured SCAL is included and your product can be rolled out into the live environment.

Product goes live – 6B will help you with the Request for Change to IM1 and you will be invited to the IM1 supplier forum. Through this, 6B can assist with reporting any faults or incidents, as well as continually engaging with IM1.

Support at every stage – Throughout the entire process, 6B is available for consultation and development support, ensuring documentation is properly and comprehensively submitted to the relevant bodies so that your product can start benefiting patients as soon as possible.
