Improving maternity care
PRSB has started work on a new set of standards to improve maternity care records.
Emergency care standard
New standards ensure when patients are discharged vital information is transferred quickly to their GP
PRSB exists to optimise the health of UK citizens through the definition and widespread adoption of high quality, standardised records.
The Healthy child standard is helping to develop new community child health records so birth details, immunisation records and the outcome of developmental reviews will be shared digitally.
Work has begun to create new standards for maternity records. This will ensure that information can be easily shared, ultimately delivering safer care for both women and their babies.
Long-term patient at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Alan Craig, speaks to the PRSB about his experience using the patient portal tool MyChart.
