Allocate Software has announced TPP is the latest partner to join its ‘connect programme’ which aims to help create more connected and interoperable care.

The joint venture will allow the integration of TPP’s SystmOne electronic health record data with Allocate’s HealthRoster and eCommunity systems enabling patient record data to be automatically uploaded into the Allocate platforms.

Automating this process will enable community care staff to improve the clinical and patient experience by spending more time on patient care and less time on manual, administrative tasks.

Nick Wilson, chief executive at Allocate, said: “I am really proud to partner with TPP.  Bringing interoperability between electronic patient records and workforce data will make a significant and positive difference to staff and the time they spend inputting data into multiple systems.

“This really matters as health service providers are urgently seeking better ways to respond to the increased care demand in all settings, while at the same time making sure the experience of clinical staff is supportive and fulfilling. This integration will hugely reduce staff scheduling time ensuring those delivering care in the community are spending as much time with patients as possible.”

SystmOne is used by 250,000 people globally and by over 7500 NHS organisations. The interoperability with Allocate’s workforce tools will align real time patient demand with staffing availability and skills into one system for the first time.  The automatic flow of patient data between eCommunity and SystmOne will ensure complete accuracy of data between the systems and save administration time on the input of data on both systems.

Ashley Brook, director at TPP, added: “We are very pleased about our upcoming integration with Allocate. TPP is dedicated to working with partners to enhance the clinical experience for our users and, in combination with SystmOne, Allocate will save extensive administrative time for community care providers, enabling them to spend more valuable face-to-face time with their patients.”
