The GP portal (now called EpicCare Link UCLH) is a web-based solution that allows GPs to access information about patients they have referred to UCLH. Features include being able to check admissions, waiting lists, discharges, Emergency Department attendances, outpatients and UCLH-ordered results.
UCLH switched to an electronic health record system called EPIC on 31 March 2019 and the system utilises DocMan Connect to transfer hospital correspondence into either the practice DocMan inbox or MESH (depending on practice set-up and preference).
EpicCare Link accounts are locked if not used for 90 days.

Health and care organisations across north central London are working together to join-up their records across five boroughs (Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Islington and Haringey). This work will result in an integrated electronic health and social care record that will help to improve the quality of care for our residents.
The record has two elements:
A summary of our residents’ health and social care information together in one easy-to-view real-time record, that can be accessed by a resident’s care team by clicking an icon within existing clinical and social care systems.
This will be facilitated by a software application called Health Information Exchange (HIE).
An increased collective ability to be more proactive in the care of our communities. The system will take elements of health and care information from different sources and enable us to care for groups of residents, as well as individuals, in relation to health or social conditions.
This will be facilitated by a software application called HealtheIntent.
This approach, and access to the applications, is being introduced gradually across the five boroughs, starting with a number of early-adopter sites that will launch the HIE shared record by March 2019. HealtheIntent will follow at early adopter sites from Summer 2019 onwards.
This programme is a step towards creating a cross-London health and care record, as part of One London. The One London model focusses strongly on the delivery of data sharing between providers at the point of care across London to inform and support clinical decision-making and inclusive patient access.
