Fast growing digital provider, Priority Digital Health, has this month become an accredited partner for the Medical Interoperability Gateway (MIG), data sharing technology developed by Healthcare Gateway.
The industry-leading MIG is a secure middleware technology which facilitates the two-way exchange of patient information between health and social care organisations.
Achieving MIG accreditation means that the Priority Digital Health platform can now access and share over 60.4 million patient records, in real-time, with healthcare settings across the country. The fully interoperable gateway allows integration with all major GP IT systems including EMIS Health, TPP Vision, plus data from social care, mental health and community organisations in HTML or structured format.
Alison Meadows, Joint Chief Executive at Priority Digital Health, said: “The systems we already have in place to protect our patients and their information is vitally important to us and we are continually reviewing and refining the way we do this. Not only for today, but also for the post-Covid-19 future.
That’s why we are delighted to achieve partner status for the esteemed Medical Interoperability Gateway. The system enables our Priority platform to share data seamlessly across a whole plethora of health settings, streamlining the patient journey and, crucially, saving precious administration time for healthcare professionals.”
The MIG which was launched in 2010 by Healthcare Gateway, is used by 70% of Local Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STP) in England. Access to patient data improves patient pathways and provides healthcare professionals with the right data, in the right place at the right time to make informed decisions efficiently.
Liam King, Director of Customer and Commercial at Healthcare Gateway, said: “We’re delighted to be partnered with Priority Digital Health enabling MIG connectivity to seamlessly share patient information in real-time. The integration will help healthcare professionals make faster more informed decisions. We’re looking forward to working with Priority Digital Health supporting better health across England.”
Earlier this year Priority Digital Health also achieved ISO 27001 accreditation, the internationally renowned information security management certificate, and NHS DCB 0129 compliance, the UK’s mandatory safety standard for health IT systems.
