Transfers of Care (1)

We have a Transfer of Care website where you can join our mailing list and receive updates regarding the Transfer of Care initiative, including updates regarding the final specification.

The Programme is currently creating the remaining Transfer of Care profiles and these will be complete and published on the FHIR reference server mid-May 2018. The next iteration of the message specifications is due to be published on GitHub early June 2018 for Inpatient, Mental Health and Emergency Care discharge summaries and the end of June 2018 for Outpatient Letters. We will, however, make every effort to offer more coordinated communications going forward.

There are two parts to this: first of all, your primary engagement will always need to be with the NHS at a local level – these are your customers and your revenue stream. However, you may also wish to be able to advise your customers with regard to upcoming strategic moves around inter-organisational information exchange, especially with details of how your system(s) can help your customer meet the most recent contractual requirements for Transfer of Care and Open (CareConnect) APIs. I would recommend anyone in your position take an active roll in INTEROPen, where NHS England, NHS Digital, local CIO/CCIOs, other system suppliers, standards bodies etc. work together to develop and adopt open national standards for information exchange.
