Healthcare Gateway and Servelec has announced an extension to the functionality available to Rio customers, enabling access to real time patient data whenever and wherever it is required.
A new dataset from Rio is now available via Healthcare Gateway’s Medical Interoperability Gateway (MIG) and will allow the reciprocal sharing of patient data between multiple health and social care organisations. With single point access, clinicians can view relevant and vital patient information at the point of care, regardless of the care setting.
This development will provide a real time view of community, child and mental health data from Servelec’s Rio system through the Rio Smartview interface, powered by Servelec’s Conexes solution, a cloud-based interoperability platform enabling data sharing.
Rio already provides users with access to MIG’s Detailed Care Record (DCR) service, which presents live feeds of data from a patient’s GP record. The new Rio dataset can be viewed alongside the DCR service to provide a comprehensive view of a patient’s medical history, and can offer the following benefits:
- Better co-ordination of a patient’s care
- Improved, more informed treatment decisions
- Improvements to patient safety
- Better management of challenging situations
- More satisfying clinical interactions
Peter Anderson, managing director of Healthcare Gateway, said: “The Servelec community care dataset is an exciting extension to our product range, which will provide frontline primary and secondary care staff with access to crucial information held by community mental health services. By working closely with valued partners like Servelec, we aim to increase the availability of specialist patient data through the MIG to enable integrated, more effective healthcare.”
Neil Laycock, managing director of Servelec’s Healthcare business added: “At Servelec, we believe that delivering efficient access to the right data at the right time to the right person is what will make the difference in the delivery of joined-up care. Today’s announcement is further evidence of Servelec accelerating plans to deliver interoperability in today’s healthcare ecosystem.
“Providing real-time access to a patient’s clinical record is critical in the delivery of effective, informed care. When the same is also provided across other, non-clinical care settings, such as to social care practitioners, treatment of ‘the whole person’ is truly possible.”
