EHRS information for patients 

Last year, we've implemented a new system at UCLH bringing together all the information about your care into a single electronic health record. This means that anyone in your care team has access to the latest information in one place.

Having all the latest information available electronically in one place means we can further improve care. Your doctor, nurse, pharmacist or anyone in your care team can see your care history and the most recent information you've shared with us.

A single and secure electronic health record means we can build up a picture of different conditions, causes, treatments and results over time. It means we can use this information to find new treatments and improve care now and in the future. You will need to give consent for your data to be used in this way. All information will be de-identified and you can opt out at any time.

As a patient at UCLH, you can also sign up to MyCare UCLH, an online patient portal accessible on a computer, smartphone or tablet. You can then access your own data safely and securely, to help manage and improve your condition.

Damon Kamming, consultant anaesthetist who helped to design the system said: “Being both a patient and a doctor here, I have seen things from both sides. The patient portal will help patients to manage and improve their condition, improve communication with healthcare teams, and make it easier for staff to deliver care.”
