Introduced in 2020, the London Care Record is a secure way to share patient information with health and care professionals across the Capital, so they have the information they need at the point of care to inform their clinical decision-making.
In total, the London Care Record has been used almost 40 million times and become a vital tool for health and care staff across the Capital and beyond.
This includes supporting safe prescribing of medications, quicker hospital discharges and helping staff spend more time with patients.
Earlier this year, OneLondon commissioned Queen’s University Belfast to undertake an independent economic evaluation of the London Care Record, focusing on reported benefits relating to time-saving, quality and safety outcomes.
Its key findings include:
This economic evaluation is important in understanding the value of the London Care Record and will help OneLondon and its partners assess the value their investment in the London Care Record delivers for the communities they serve.
This study is part of a wider and ongoing benefits strategy for the OneLondon programme. As part of this ongoing work further analysis will be undertaken in key areas including safety.
