INTEROPen is UK nation agnostic. As a growing action group, with funding provided as resource and support in kind, we have focused on where we can make a difference with the engagement we have. Initially, this was focused by working with NHS Digital and NHS England to build national CareConnect profiles to support GPConnect and Transfers of Care, whilst creating a basic set of National FHIR capabilities to support other care organisations and vendors who wish to develop interfaces for data exchange.

NHS Scotland and NHS Wales have recently shown interest in engaging with this work and discussing the profiles we are developing. Importantly, the many vendors in INTEROPen cover the 4 nations and, as implementers, play an important part in helping to ensure consistency in the design of the CareConnect specifications.

Does INTEROPen cover Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland too? Or just NHS England?
