What are the CareConnect Open APIs?

CareConnect Open APIs have been developed by NHS Digital and INTEROPen to support the delivery of care by opening up information and data held across different clinical care settings. The CareConnect Open APIs use nationally defined FHIR resources, and are a method of transferring records from a source to a recipient.

A CareConnect generic record will contain Metadata (i.e. patient, location); written statements about the care provided (i.e. diagnosis, medications, procedures, allergies); and coded entries (medication, diagnosis, procedure).

When combined with other capabilities (such as National Record Locator Service (NRLS) CareConnect Open API will enable clinicians in one care setting to view records from across other care settings (i.e. a clinician in A&E accessing a patient’s medical record from an out of area service).
