Dear colleague,

You are invited to join NHS E&I and NHS Digital for special webinar for suppliers, focused on the further digitisation of Community Health.

Taking place on Wednesday 29th June from 11.00 to 12.30, the session will specifically cover the work we are undertaking to enable NHS funded Community Health Care settings to get access to clinical GP data, notably via the integration of the Direct Care API (also known as GP Connect).

Who is the event for?

The webinar is for Suppliers providing an Electronic Patient Record (EPR) to Community Health Care providers. IT suppliers will be fundamental in the delivery of this programme of work so engagement with the sector is crucial. As such we would like as many system suppliers as possible to join us, specifically those providing IT systems to Community Health.

At the event, we would really encourage you to share information with us about any of your challenges, and customer base feedback that you believe could support our agenda.

What will the event cover?

The session will provide suppliers with:

  • Information on GP Connect API, that enables authorised clinician staff access to GP data, in a standard form across different systems and care settings
  • Details of the benefits of integrating the API for both suppliers and clinical settings
  • Guidance on how to implement the API

What is the Direct Care API?

Access to GP data for is central to this work so we are kicking off our work with the provision of the Direct Care API that will enable authorised clinical staff in NHS funded Community Health Care settings to access GP data in a standard form.
