The Medical Interoperability Gateway (MIG) helped Barnsley Clinical Commissioning Group and Barnsley Healthcare Federation CIC to win the ‘Management and Culture Project of the Year’ category of the 2017 Public Sector Paperless Awards.

They have been using the MIG since early 2016 to share GP records electronically. This has helped to provide clinicians with instant access to patient information and has reduced the need for letters and other paper-based correspondence.

The MIG was initially used by iHeart Barnsley and they coordinated the award submission on behalf of the CCG and CIC. Both organisations played a key role in persuading GPs and end user organisations to invest in the MIG and felt that the awards would provide a good opportunity to showcase this project.

Barnsley CCG have used the MIG to connect different IT systems across the region including EMIS Web, SystmOne and Adastra.

This means that the 33 GPs across the borough can now share patient information with iHeart Barnsley, South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Yorkshire Ambulance Service and Barnsley Hospice.
