Mental heath project an NHS first

A first-of-its-kind NHS project involving four West Midlands mental health vanguard trusts and more than three million patients, will co-ordinate care for mental health patients and could provide a model for the entire health service.

Based on InterSystems HealthShare, the project will enable shared access for relevant professionals to specific but crucial information from the patient’s mental health record at time of crisis.

It is the first mental health trusts collaboration in England to allow authorised professionals to share access to this essential patient data when needed, providing controlled access to mental health diagnoses and details.
