We’ve been shortlisted – HTN Awards 2018

Healthcare Gateway and the Lancashire Person Record Exchange Service (LPRES) have been shortlisted in the Paperless Project of the Year category for the HTN Awards 2018.

The LPRES programme enables the sharing of crucial health and social care information via a Health Information Exchange (HIE) platform supplied by Tiani-Spirit UK. The platform is supported by the Medical Interoperability Gateway (MIG) and uses Documents Services to send clinical documents to over 300 GP practices.

The Medical Interoperability Gateway enables health and care organisations to exchange any type of clinical document and the LPRES project demonstrates the benefits of electronic document transfer. It’s always a pleasure to work with LPRES and it’s fantastic that the hard work of both teams has been recognised.” Peter Anderson, Managing Director, Healthcare Gateway.

“We are extremely proud of the LPRES programme of work and the partnership we have nurtured with Healthcare Gateway and in particular the MIG team. The programme has provided many benefits that are centered around putting the citizen at the heart of care provision in Lancashire and South Cumbria and empowering care givers with real-time, accurate information to support improved patient outcomes”. Andrew Thompson, Head of NWSIS & LPRES.

“Underpinning an effective, efficient, integrated care system is the secure movement of data across all organisations involved in the delivery of that care. LPRES in partnership with Healthcare Gateway has brought about improved patient care by addressing the issues associated with silos of information, stored within legacy systems, across multiple organisations. We enable relevant patient information to be available to authorised members of the clinical and social care teams in order to support timely patient care. With patient consent, data from the GP record, acute and community providers is made available across the health economy with access to the information controlled and auditable”. Beverley Roberts, LPRES Operational Manager.

The winners of the HTN awards will be announced on 7 November at 19.00 through the HTN digital channels.
