“Capturing primary care data is massively important. It’s one of the data black holes if you haven’t got it, especially if you want to understand prescribing in primary care.”

David Crowther, business intelligence manager, NHS Oldham

Secure data for your peace of mind

All data extracted is bound by strict information governance, consent and data sharing agreements. 

We currently offer a selection of standard patient-identifiable, pseudo-anonymised and anonymised extracts once the necessary approvals are in place.

We use the OpenPseudonymiser algorithm that can be applied to alternative datasets to ensure effective data linkages. 


We’ve been committed to interoperability for over 30 years. We believe that connecting patient information across healthcare settings enables better care, which is why our solutions are developed with interoperability in mind.

Through our Partner Programme, we also work with over 40 different companies, so that you can choose from a wide range of additional products that seamlessly exchange data with our products.
