Improving information sharing between health and social care is critical to professionals who care for people and the health and wellbeing of people themselves.
The care homes view is the information that care home staff can see in a shared care record. This information will be incorporated into the Core information standard during the next update, expected end beginning of 2021.
This standard is being published in draft form while endorsement is sought from relevant professional bodies and stakeholder groups.
Sharing information across health and social care
The Care homes view of shared care records is part of a wider set of standards published in November 2020. PRSB was asked by NHS Digital to help to create national standards for sharing information between health and social care, drawing on the learning from successful local projects to speed up national roll out and adoption.
The five new standards outline key information, such as how someone’s needs might change after being in hospital and how this needs to be recorded. More than 1000 people helped to develop the standards, including people who use services, carers and frontline professionals.
