Additional information now available via Summary Care Record

26 Aug 2015

The latest version of the Summary Care Record (SCR) has recently been rolled out to GP practices using EMIS Web in England.

After receiving full roll out approval from HSCIC on 7 August 2015 – the software update is now available to all our EMIS Web practices in England.

With the release of SCR v2.1, additional information is available to healthcare professionals at the point of care. This is especially useful for patients with chronic and long term conditions, as well as vulnerable patients such as the elderly or medically impaired.

Whether a patient is attending A&E, an urgent care centre or being treated in secondary care, healthcare professionals can access this information using SCR - helping to significantly improve the quality, safety and effectiveness of the patient’s journey.

For more information about SCR v2.1 visit the HSCIC website – alternatively if you’re using EMIS Web, visit EMIS Now for more details.
