The MIG now provides patient data direct to all GP systems


We’re pleased to announce The Medical Interoperability Gateway (MIG) most recent enhancement enables all GP systems to consume any available MIG dataset.

This includes our Mental Health Dataset from Servelec RiO and Adult Social Care Dataset from Liquidlogic. GPs have consumed MIG data for some time but our latest enhancement allows a direct feed to all four primary care software provider systems: EMIS, Vision, TPP and Microtest with patient data, in a single view, at the point of care.

Organisational feeds of data provide GPs with a holistic view of a patient’s medical information which is relevant to their specific condition, helping them to make informed clinical decisions.

“It’s fantastic that the MIG can now feed rich patient data from health or social care organisations into all GP provider systems across the country. By enabling all MIG data flows into primary care, a GP is armed with real-time specialised data from other health and social care setting to support and improve care. At Healthcare Gateway we continually develop our interoperability capabilities to provide products and services that really join up the health and social care landscape, today!” Liam King, Director of Customer and Commercial Experience, Healthcare Gateway. 

Looking ahead at primary care digital development brought about through GP IT Futures, new providers of care systems in the GP space, will also have the ability to integrate the MIG to safely and securely share patient records to transform care in primary care.

What are the benefits for GPs?      

  • a holistic view of patient medical information which is relevant to their specific condition
  • instant access to real-time data from different healthcare settings
  • valuable data which is seamlessly integrated within your existing system
  • improved information sharing between acute trusts and primary care services
