GP2GP

GP2GP enables patients' electronic health records to be transferred directly and securely between GP practices. It improves patient care as GPs will usually have full and detailed medical records available to them for a new patient's first consultation.

Bath Row Medical Practice will be going live with this system On Wednesday 11th March 2015.

GP2GP: why it's needed

GP2GP is the project that enables patients' electronic health records (EHRs) to be transferred directly from one practice to another.

GP2GP starts when a practice accepts a patient onto their list of patients for primary health care and ends when the EHR is transferred from the previous practice into the new GP clinical system.

GP2GP electronic transfers will be more accurate and secure - and much faster than the current paper-based approach, which can take weeks to complete.

GP2GP will deliver a range of benefits, including:

Improved quality and continuity of care

  • The patient’s new GP will have knowledge of the patient’s current medication, drug interactions, current problems and past medical history, resulting in enhanced patient safety and more focused consultations from day one.

Improved safety

  • There will be fewer transcribing errors and omissions because the need to key in information from paper records will be massively reduced.
  • Allergies and Adverse Drug Reactions are flagged for review for new patients, resulting in safer prescribing of new drugs after a GP2GP patient record transfer.

Clinical time savings

  • Electronic health records more likely to be available during initial consultations.
  • GP2GP allows the NHS to preserve the usability of rich data accumulated in patient records, such as history of blood results for diabetics, rather than losing it every time a patient moves between practices – which means fewer requests for duplicate lab tests.

Administrative time savings

  • Administrative support teams will have to spend less time processing incoming patient records due to the richness of the information available electronically.
