The benefits of GP Connect
Having better access to patient records has long been on the wish list of medical professionals.
The NHS Long Term Plan has outlined a number of changes to transform the way the NHS operates, with a particular focus on digital services.
GP Connect aims to make care quicker, more efficient and more convenient for patients, but it will also offer more secure data protection and provide clinicians with the tech solutions they need to be more effective.
It aims to completely revolutionise the way patients access healthcare, including evening and weekend appointments, as well as improving the provision of out of hours and urgent care services.
So – what do these changes mean for clinicians treating patients?
It will not only enable them to provide more informed patient care, but it will also save valuable time on performing manual administrative tasks and make patient data more secure, in line with GDPR regulations.
The platform will also be used to better manage patient appointments by making structured medications and allergy information immediately accessible for healthcare professionals.
