Virgin Care’s proposed model will be deployed in multiple phases.
1. They will work with the DN teams to develop their nursing forms within their mobile working solution. They expect that this will be completed in phase one. The DNs will continue to update clinical records as they currently do until the mobile working solution is fully deployed and nurses trained.
2. We anticipate that the work to deploy full structured interoperability between Virgin’s systems and EMIS/TPP will be completed in Q1 18. This will allow the sharing of coded data. Virgin are at different stages with these two providers. EMIS is mostly integrated (March 2017) and Virgin are already sharing clinical data with EMIS GPs as PDF attachments to the GP record. Final TPP sharing arrangements are currently being negotiated.
