Interoperability

An ecosystem platform approach to sharing information

Our Ecosystem Platform

Ecosystem Platform Digital Notts

"The team provided us with fantastic support and guidance."

Project Manager, Nottingham University Hospitals Trust

An ecosystem platform approach to digital transformation offers the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care System (ICS) an opportunity to improve interoperable data sharing across Health and Social Care. 

Our Ecosystem Platform is a priority programme for Digital Notts and aligns with Principle 3 of the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICS Strategy: Integration by default. The programme will enable improved information sharing across the whole Integrated Care System, providing health and care professionals with the data they need from all available sources.

In bringing together data across organisational boundaries, the Ecosystem Platform enables genuinely integrated working, supporting the delivery of seamless, person-centred care. This means teams across partners can more easily work together and have the information they need to improve outcomes for our population. It also saves time across health and social care, as our professionals have the information they need, where and when they need it.

Benefits

  • Clinicians and social care teams have the data they need to improve decision making and care
  • Your data is shared between care professionals, reducing the need for duplicate tests, assessments or repeating your story multiple times
  • Handover processes will be faster: for example, from hospital to social care
  • Our administration processes will be more efficient, giving staff more quality time to care
  • Services will feel more joined up and efficient, saving you time and improving your experience of our health and care system

Nottingham and Nottinghamshire are proud to be part of the NHS-owned Interweave consortium. This partnership model means we jointly own our Ecosystem Platform, alongside other Integrated Care Systems. This offers us flexibility and control, whilst also giving us access to an innovative integration tool. We are also pleased to be working with partners in the consortium to support new developments, including the exchange of data with our neighbouring Integrated Care Systems in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland and Yorkshire and the Humber.

Interoperability Projects

These projects aim to give every health and care professional the data they need, when they need it – irrespective
of who collected it, or in what system or organisational setting it comes from. 

The Notts Care Record

The Notts Care Record is a shared platform empowering clinical and care staff with access to up-to-date health and care information, across organisational and geographic boundaries.

Discharge to Assess

The Ecosystem Platform is supporting the digitisation of Discharge to Assess processes across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. Integrated teams working on hospital discharge will have all the information they need to safely support people to return home, or closer to home.
