Wolverhampton CCG adopts shared software for diabetes management

Wolverhampton CCG is using a shared record software product suite to deliver a diabetes management system for the 16,500 people in its care.

Wolverhampton CCG is using a shared record software product suite to deliver a diabetes management system for the 16,500 people in its care.

The CCG is working with The Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust to ensure clinicians in the hospital diabetic centre and in primary care services have a complete and up-to-date picture of a patient’s on-going care.  This process is hoped to empower patients to be engaged with professionals across the health economy and enable them to agree their own personalised care plan.

Its CareCentric software, developed by Graphnet, is a health integration engine which combines data from GP practices, mental health trusts, social services departments and hospitals into a secure electronic health record.  CareCentric connects to most major health and social care IT systems in use in the UK, is used by over 30,000 care professionals and holds data on more than 17m patients.

Data integration across multiple solutions, data quality management and ease of use in the final product were key features in the choice of the IT solution.

Andy Bratt, managing director of Graphnet, said he was delighted to see such a clear example of the benefits available from CareCentric’s full functionality.  It operates both as a health integration engine, bringing data together from multiple sources, and as a business intelligence tool.

“CareCentric is an ideal platform to host shared care applications,” he said.  “Not only does it allow results and assessments to be shared across an entire health community, but it also allows health professionals to analyse and apply that data intelligently.”
