Why is information sharing critical to delivering whole systems integrated care?

For care to be truly built around individuals, we need each of the professionals treating or caring for an individual, to be able to view selected information about that individual's health, social care packages and – crucially – individual’s personal goals and aspirations.

This will be done via an integrated care record.The record will be created using information from the range of care providers involved in an individual’s treatment. It will be transferred to and stored in a data warehouse and its use will governed by a legal document, the Whole Systems Integrated Care NWL Digital Information Agreement. This agreement ensures that people’s information is stored and used legally and in line with national standards.
