Rochdale Borough Council (RBC) are using the Medical Interoperability Gateway to provide social care staff with real time GP data.

With an increased focus on local integration, the council were keen to find a way of viewing primary care information electronically.
They felt that this type of data sharing would help staff to understand the full context of a patient’s care and enable different teams to work more closely.

NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale Clinical Commissioning Group were already using the Shared Record Viewer but the Council were keen to present MIG data within their Liquidlogic Adult Social Care System.

Staff can now access a patient’s GP record, which includes medication (current, past and issues), risks and warnings, procedures, investigations, encounters, admissions and referrals, alongside their social care data.

Scott Moseley, MIS Portfolio Manager for Rochdale Borough Council said, “The MIG provides staff with the full picture. They can view additional information about the patient, which helps them to make informed decisions faster. We were pleased that the Healthcare Gateway team were able to lead the conversations with Liquidlogic and their experience of similar projects was invaluable”.
