In this extended episode, our panel will describe the Care Information Exchange, a patient portal that facilitates the sharing of healthcare records across NW London. This system currently holds the records for over 1.6 million patients and allows patients, hospitals, GP practices and social care organisations to effectively share records for a population of 2.4 million.

They will also describe how the frailty team in the Trust have used the portal with remote patient monitoring technology to redesign a care pathway for lung conditions, post-COVID. They will discuss the resulting improvements in patient care, especially in detecting deterioration during hospital stays and afterwards in the community, and the economic benefits that have accrued through the use of patient-generated data.

A CPD certificate with 2 CPD credits will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.
