Health Information Exchange

London Borough of Islington’s Adult Social Care Department is a participant in Health Information Exchange (HIE). HIE is an Electronic Health Record (EHR) linking system that brings together patient/client’s information across health and care systems in a secure manner, giving a real-time summary of your information which is held within a number of local records.

Access to joined-up health and care records will save time and support everyone delivering health and care services by providing:

  • A snapshot view of a resident’s health and care history, current and past medications and a summary of previous events and episodes of care
  • Information such as discharge summaries and clinic letters, so teams have a broader understanding of a resident’s story
  • Current medications, medical history, allergies and information about appointments
  • Results of tests and investigations requested by other providers, reducing the need to manually request the results of tests
  • Accurate information, so resident no longer need to recall and retell their history, medication dosages or the outcome of previous care

For further information on HIE and how your personal data is used please see the Privacy Notice which has been created by North London Partners in Health and Care, of which London Borough of Islington is a participating member.
