For the past nine months, 34 practices in Islington have been piloting Remote Consultation in three hubs. Now out-of-hours clinicians and non-clinical support staff have access to the full patient record, so they can make safer decisions with better information. The consultation is then saved back to the home practice so the information can be reviewed and reported on by the patient’s registered GP.
Clinicians love it because:
- interoperability between patient hubs is easy and straightforward, and
- indemnity insurance cover is reduced as out-of-hours clinicians have access to the patient’s complete record.
