HealthOne (electronic Shared Care View)

Posted by on 3 February 2017

Sharing patient health information between authorised healthcare providers is now possible. Patients could find themselves in the Emergency Department and doctors there will be able to access your vital medical information such as allergies, long term medical conditions, test results and prescriptions. The aim is to provide limited, up to date patient information from health providers involved to enable better decision- making and improve the quality of care and outcomes for the patient.

Healthcare providers will contribute information to the secure eSCRV database and in turn allow authorised clinicians to access relevant patient information. It is important to note that not all patient information will be made available on the eSCRV system - just the last contact date, key events, chronic medical conditions, test results and recent medications prescribed.

Our practice will be able to view data provided by The Canterbury District Health Board system-this will include discharge summaries of recent hospital admissions and emergency department visits; list outpatient appointments and medications prescribed; along with medications dispensed and information on home care provided and planned by Nurse Maude staff. We will only be allowed to view the information of our own patients.

Be assured that there are strict privacy and security measures in place. If you do not agree to having your medical records shared there is an opt-off process for patients.
