Integrated care is the ‘Holy Grail’ in health and social care – ‘human-centred’ rather than system-centred services improve the care and wellbeing of citizens, reduce the cost of service delivery and increase productivity in the NHS and local government. Yet, there is a lack of integration across care services – interoperability between information systems remains problematic and current approaches do not fit the needs of current policy or the aspirations of a rapidly evolving market.
As a signatory, Enovacom adheres to making information systems more open and easier to integrate, to enable the free-flow of patient information between products, and hence across the care continuum. In doing so, we are making a significant contribution to delivering the new models of integrated care set out in the Five Year Forward View that will radically transform the way patients are treated.
