In addition, Docman Vault has the ability to plug into various consumer application portals such as the Integrated Care Record
that many CCGs are now embarking on.
Jersey Health and Social Services is currently procuring an integrated care record
(ICR) to support its New Directions Strategy at a potential cost of approximately GBP12m.
Continuity fails frequently because there is no "general contractor." The inpatient provider may attempt only a perfunctory effort at coordination, i.e., simply fax the care record to a community provider; the community organization may not engage in outreach to facilitate continuity; system managers may not permit resources to be expended on this function; accreditation standards may not address the topic; and no integrated care record
(either electronic or paper) may be available.
The scheme is called Integrated Care Record
Services and the idea is that a central database is created which can be accessed and updated by people in all areas of the health care system.
