Posted on 21 Apr 2017
New Care Record sharing system to improve health and care launched in Dorset
People in Dorset can look forward to improved health and care following the decision to go ahead with a new electronic record sharing solution.
The Dorset Care Record (DCR) will bring together information from hospitals, GPs, community teams and local councils, enabling details of a person’s medical or care history – and their needs – to be summarised in the same place.
It will improve co-ordination and communication between different agencies, improving treatments and reducing delays, and meaning people will have to tell their story only once.
