Care Insight




 

WHAT IS CARE INSIGHT?  :   VIDEO

Care Insight is a service that allows you to offer your patients safer after-hours care, both in an emergency department and in A&E. Care Insight allows authorised medical ED doctors limited access to up-to-date patient records, consisting of recent prescriptions, recent diagnoses and medical alerts. This is securely presented directly from your practice, with on-site patient consent and without the need for frequent data extracts or storing any information outside your practice system.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

When you activate Care Insight at your practice, Care Insight will respond to authorised (ED doctor) requests for a person's medical card, consisting of recent prescriptions, diagnosis and medical alerts. Only if a patient consent is obtained, this information is presented to the requesting ED doctor, directly from your practice. Care Insight uses ground breaking technology. It is a world-first.

WHAT ABOUT PATIENT PRIVACY?

Unlike most if not all other systems offering shared medical records around the world, Care Insight does not provide access to any form of shared record. Care Insight ONLY allows access to a patients' medical card if the requesting doctor has agreed this can happen and if the patient or next of kin has authorised this information to be requested from the practice. Please note that you will be informed of any request for patient data from your practice.
