The Professional Records Standards Body has joined forces with Digital Health, as part of a new initiative to increase the adoption of standards across health and social care services.

We have become an official event partner for the new Digital Health Rewired leadership summit, which takes place next March, and the Digital Health Summer Schools 2019, which will take place at the University of Leeds in July.

Lorraine Foley, CEO of PRSB said:

“We are delighted to be partnering with Digital Health. Working together, particularly on the Rewired event, will help us raise greater awareness of PRSB standards. And we’ll be able to lend more support to clinical and digital leaders and staff as they implement our standards for information sharing across health and social care.” 

Jon Hoeksma, CEO of Digital Health, added:

“The PRSB is playing a key role in the development and adoption of common standards, the use of which will enable safer, more joined-up care, starting with discharge summaries. We look forward to working with them on Rewired.” 

The new agreement builds on the current partnership between PRSB and Digital Health. Ahead of the Rewired event, we will continue our involvement in the developing programme, and will also run a CCIO panel session to share the early experiences of adopters of PRSB records standards.
