This event is designed to inform all Trusts of the upcoming eRedbook deployment.
The Early Years providers which are early adopters of eRedbook will receive technical assistance from NHS England, NHS Digital and Sitekit to set up the interoperability and parent-identification services with eRedbook. The programme of work will scale eRedbook as a collaboratively created universal record across London. For early adopters until April 2017, this will be funded from NHS England after which sustainably funding for eRedbook will come from the CHIServices budget.
eRedbook is a collaborative PHR which is in use at Liverpool Community Health Trust and is being trialled in London. eRedbook is the first PHR to meet the standards sets by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health for a Personal Child Health Record and it contains the same core dataset. It is designed to present information entered by parents alongside information entered by professionals so that there is much richer view of a child’s early years. The eRedbook and information about the child can be accessed anywhere at any time via smartphone, tablet or laptops/PC’s. Parents can choose to share data directly with family members or those individuals directly involved in caring for the child and family. The online calendar provides alerts and reminders for when a development review or immunisation is due.
The new Healthy Children: transforming child health information aims to transform child health information services allowing better monitoring of every child’s health and providing access to information for all those that are involved in the child’s care, where appropriate, to ensure that all children get the best possible start in life.
