My Care Record - Helping deliver better co-ordinated care across west Hertfordshire
My Care Record will help deliver better co-ordinated care
People in west Hertfordshire will benefit from better, joined-up care thanks to a new programme which gives health and care professionals the ability to view medical records during treatment.
Health and care professionals need to access information in order to make the best decisions about a patient’s diagnosis and treatment. My Care Record will help this to happen more quickly and accurately.
My Care Record does not share your record, but provides trained professionals access to view information relevant to your care and treatment.
Initially, My Care Record will be available only in Watford General A&E Department but further departments will be added following evaluation.
Patients can opt out through their GP surgery if they do not want to make their information available.
