Good practice guidelines for GP patient records
Connecting for Health has released an information bulletin, reporting that the new Good Practice Guidelines for GP electronic patient records version 4 will act as a reference source of information for all those involved in developing, deploying and using general practice IT systems.
The scope of the guidelines has been extended in this fourth version to include new services (including the Summary Care Record, Electronic Prescription Service and GP2GP). There is also a greater focus on information sharing and the central themes of the guidelines are interoperability and data quality.
