  • Wirral Care Record & Health Information Exchange

    The Healthy Wirral Population Health Programme is delivering two key solutions to reduce variations in the health of local people and improve care.

    The Health Information Exchange (HIE) is a shared care record that provides access to real time patient information. Along side it, the Wirral Care Record (WCR) supports targeted intervention and prevention based on a set of wellness and condition registries. Both solutions use Cerner technology to draw data from 51 GP practices, community services, the acute hospital, and cancer centre. Further datasets will be added in time.

  • Your Care Connected

    Your Care Connected (YCC) is an information sharing programme, hosted by Birmingham Cross City CCG on behalf of the other CCGs in the region. It uses the Medical Interoperability Gateway (MIG) to enable secondary care clinicians to view information recorded by the GP. In the next phase, the ambulance service and out of hours providers will gain access, and other organisations will follow.

    YCC plays a role in the Birmingham Intelligent City programme, which aims to deploy a city-wide infrastructure to meet the evolving demands of its citizens and support new models of engagement.
