Stakeholders from across the geography came together on 5 November in Maidenhead for the Thames Valley and Surrey (TVS) Care Records Partnership and Digital Health Networks event. The event was hosted by Julie Fisher, SRO for TVS Care Records Partnership and was attended by almost 100 delegates. These included care professionals, CIOs, CCIOs, service managers, and lay representatives who joined us in discussions, debate and heard from experts in the fields of health and digital development.
The TVS Care Records Partnership was one of the five first wave Local Health and Care Record (LHCR) Exemplar sites announced in 2018, and is working to connect together shared records programmes across the region with a population of 3.8 million. At this event delegates had an opportunity to hear from health and care professionals, digital and patient experts, and were involved in directly shaping some tangible benefits from the Thames Valley and Surrey care records platform.
The theme for the day was “Accelerate, Enable and Disrupt to Innovate”.
- Accelerate: the partnership is working to develop and support more rapid adoption of data sharing across the region, sharing best practice and experience;
- Enable: initiatives in the TVS care records platform to support all areas to get more value from shared data, for example integrating Ambulance and Child Health data;
- Disrupt: supporting innovations that integrate with the TVS care records to provide greater personalisation for patients, citizens and professionals.
