MIG information page - Healthcare Gateway

What is the Medical Interoperability Gateway (MIG)?

The MIG is a secure middleware technology which enables the two-way exchange of patient information between health and social care organisations.

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 unnecessary hospital appointments, duplicate examinations and improve transition of care.

The MIG provides a number of core solutions which include Detailed Care Record, Document Services, Shared Record Viewer and a wide range Specialist Datasets from GP, health and social care.

We're more than just a technology provider

We have the right people and act as a trusted adviser to our customers to help them to fulfill interoperability projects inline with the national strategy. 

We work across the health and social care landscape from NHS Trusts to Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs), to help our customers deliver local and scalable projects to provide more efficient, safer joined up care.


We’re at the heart of NHS innovation and the Medical Interoperabilty Gateway (MIG) is leading the way for interoperability standards of the future.

The MIG adopts all of the national interoperability standards including the NHS Health and Social Care Information Centre Interoperability Toolkit (ITK) V1, V2 and HL7.

Why not direct integration?

The Medical Interoperability Gateway (MIG) connects different types of healthcare applications.

Direct integration requires systems to work together and it only connects two systems. 

Where direct integration isn’t possible, a middleware technology is needed to bridge the gap.
