We provide a fully managed service which supports, develops and implements the Medical Interoperability Gateway (MIG).

What is the MIG?

The MIG is a secure middleware technology which enables the two-way exchange of patient information between local healthcare settings.

It provides real-time patient information where its needed, when it’s needed. This has helped the NHS to improve the efficiency and standard of care by reducing un-necessary hospital appointments and duplicate examinations.

Why is the MIG different?

Unlike other technologies, the MIG doesn’t use a repository to store data. This means that clinicians at the point of care will always have access to a live feed of data which includes the¬†most up to date information about the patient.

The MIG uses service discovery to locate patient data which is held across different systems. It identifies all the services involved in a patient’s care and presents this information in a single application.

What are the benefits of the MIG?

By integrating with the MIG healthcare professionals can benefit from:

  • 24/7 access to patient information
  • streamlined communications
  • increased patient contact
  • reduced admin time and costs.

Which services are provided by the MIG?

The MIG provides a number of core services which include the Detailed Care Record, Specialist Dataset, Electronic Clinical Correspondence and the Shared Record Viewer.
