Remote Access Working

Man working on a laptop and writing in a notepad

GPs having access to their patients’ medical record no matter where they are, supports the ‘paper free at point of care by 2020’ and Local Digital Roadmap ambitions.

Access to a secure encrypted laptop with access to the full GP clinical system and a portable printer to enable prescribing at remote locations will reduce GP paper copies of a summary version of a patients’ record, and prescription pads. This will provide a real-time access EMIS GP medical record.

This will also build on previous funding via Tech fund 2 and give access to the Cheshire Care Record providing access to laptops
