Success of TPP and EMIS Health Interoperability Pilot

In November 2018, Herts Valley CCG and Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust carried out a successful pilot of patient information sharing between the SystmOne and EMIS Web systems, allowing users to view the complete community and GP records across the area.The project provided nine EMIS Web GP sites with the ability to view and share patient data with 50 SystmOne community services, who in turn, could also view and share with those GP sites. This allowed clinicians to bring up a patient’s care record embedded within their current clinical system. The pilot was signed off in December 2018 and Herts Valley CCG are keen to roll the interoperability project out to the wider CCG area.

TPP and CPRD collaboration

TPP and CPRD have agreed on a solution for GP practices using SystmOne to be able to send pseudonymised daily data updates of patient data to CPRD. This will significantly increase the amount and geographical spread of data available for research through CPRD. It will also enable GP practices to more readily recruit suitable patients for NHS trials, subject to relevant consents.

SystmOne & EMIS Web direct interoperability pilot now live

From today (Tuesday 2 May 2017), patients in northwest London will be given the opportunity to benefit from a landmark achievement in interoperability between the UK’s two leading GP software suppliers, TPP and EMIS Health. Users of both systems have been clear on the benefits of this interoperability, which can now be delivered in line with the national strategy.
