Software to help health services share child protection information securely is being rolled out on SystmOne software.

 TPP has announced the new NHS Spine service set up by NHS Digital under its national Child Protection Information Sharing (CP-IS) initiative is now fully integrated into SystmOne. The service is “designed to allow users to more easily identify vulnerable children. It alerts users in unscheduled care settings when a patient has a care plan with the local authority, and notifies the social care team that they have attended,” says TPP.

“If a patient who is registered has child protection information recorded then a flag will be displayed to the user. This alerts healthcare professionals when a child is vulnerable or at risk, and also makes it possible to identify when a child is being taken to multiple organisations in order to mask a pattern of abuse.”

NHS unscheduled care settings in England must implement links to CP-IS before 31 March 2018 as set out in Information Standards Notice ISN 1609 and the NHS Standard Contract, says NHS Digital. TPP joins four other NHS suppliers as accredited suppliers of CP-IS software: Advanced Health and Care (Adastra (v3.19.00)), InterSystems (Healthcare), Quicksilva (orQuestra), and Silverlink (PCS (v3.8)). Ten social care systems have also been accredited so far.

The TPP software has been piloted at Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust’s (Bridgewater) Leigh NHS Walk-in Centre. The roll out of the integration with CP-IS for the SystmOne A&E, MIU (minor injuries unit) and Out of Hours modules.

Cath Partington, Acting Clinical Service Manager, Leigh Walk-in Centre said: “Staff in the walk-in centre have really seen the benefit of the CP-IS flag and information on SystmOne. A clinician has around 10 minutes to assess a patient’s history and make important clinical decisions and this additional information relating to child protection and safeguarding on the electronic patient record can be invaluable in supporting decisions to be made in the patient’s best interest.

“As an urgent care service, many patients and their carers attend the Walk-In Centre on a one-off basis with a minor illness or injury. The system shares information recorded outside of our local area to give a much fuller history when treating potentially vulnerable patients.”
