CASPA expands GP data sharing with digital social care records

GP Connect

The Care Software Providers Association (CASPA) has expanded GP data sharing by providing patient’s GP Connect Information for care managers, deputies and other social care professionals.

The expanded data sharing follows two years of CASPA’s active partnership with NHSX, working alongside the Information Commissioner’s Office, the National Data Guardian, the Royal College of General Practitioners and the British Medical Association to establish an information governance blueprint for data sharing between health & social care.

The latest GP Connect Access Record: HTML, displayed within digital social care records, provides real time data viewing for the following social care roles: registered manager; care manager; deputy home manager; deputy care manager; senior carer; team leader; pharmacist; pharmacy technician; social worker; and nurse.

The tailored view of the GP record includes the following sections of the GP patient record: summary; allergies and adverse reactions; medications; and immunisations.

Before this expanded access can be enabled care providers must have met Data Security Protection Toolkit (DSPT) standards.

CASPA is a UK based independent, not-for-profit association focused on maximising the use of digital technology to improve the quality of care in social care and has been instrumental in showcasing electronic transfer of care information between social care and the NHS.

CASPA strives to implement legislation and regulatory guidelines within the industry where such standards do not currently exist.

Membership is available to companies involved in the provision of software to the care sector.

Members of CASPA benefit from having a central point of contact on issues facing the industry, and the association will represent members when bringing suggestions to the government and other industry bodies. For further information on membership and CASPA, please visit:
