Share2Care is a collaborative programme between the Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership and Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria delivering:
- The sharing of health and care records electronically
- A local population health and management platform
- A patient held record platform
4.3 million residents will benefit from the technologies and clinical service transformation enabled by Share2Care.
Share2Care was first introduced as part of NHSx's drive to establish Local Health and Care Records (LHCRs) to help improve outcomes for patients, and recently this work has become even more crucial in supporting our regions Coronavirus response.
This is because through Share2Care's platform known as 'e-Xchange', clinicians from across different organisations in Cheshire & Merseyside can access patient information that enables them to deliver safer, more effective and joined-up care to their patients. An outcome which is particularly beneficial during these challenging times, with services and staff being stretched due to a rise in COVID-related hospital admissions.
