Dorset care record


The Dorset care record is helping Dorset re-engineer the way it delivers health and care across the region.

The record currently draws data from three acute hospitals and the majority of Dorset’s GP practices. Data sets from other partner organisations will be added soon. A wide range of providers, including social care and mental health, can view the record. Access for the South Western Ambulance Trust is in the pipeline. 

The solution, which uses an Orion Health technology platform, is one of the key digital enablers of Dorset’s Sustainability and Transformation Plan, which focuses on three main programmes: prevention at scale, integrated community services, and one acute network.
