Cerner Teams-Up with North London Partners STP to Share Records and Improve Health and Wellbeing for 1.5 Million Citizens

CernerCerner has announced a new collaboration with North London Partners (NLP) - a partnership of health and care organisations across five London boroughs - to connect care information, share records, and apply advanced intelligence across North London to support their population health management initiatives, covering almost 1.5 million citizens.

Understood to be the first agreement of its kind on an STP-wide level, this new partnership will enable the sharing of care records between providers and care venues across north London to support informed, connected care and safe decision making.In addition to this important interoperability, NLP will use Cerner’s powerful HealtheIntentSM platform to provide a single longitudinal record for every citizen, comprised of data from all health and care systems across the entire STP.

HealtheIntent's advanced intelligence identifies and predicts risk among citizens, applying clinical recommendations - this helps clinicians and system partners to act to reduce risk, ensure people get appropriate care, and shift to proactive population health management to keep them well, and out of hospital.

This new relationship reinforces Cerner's commitment to the integration and quality improvement of local services and our drive to enable financial sustainability to support our clients in the achievement of their digital transformation goals.

NLP will leverage Cerner's expertise and solutions to provide clinicians, care professionals and citizens with appropriate access to real-time information. Securely applying intelligence creates a single data ecosystem to help NLP better understand their residents' health, care and service needs and enhance the way they plan and deliver integrated care and improve citizens' wellbeing.

Geoff Segal, Cerner UK General Manager, said: "Clinical decisions, underpinned by accessible, current information at the point of care, forms the basis of a safe patient journey. In addition, advanced data intelligence presents a huge opportunity to provide value-driven, integrated care.

"Our partnership supports these aims across the North London region and with a single source of truth, NLP will be able to identify at-risk patients, and make time appropriate interventions to ultimately improve the health outcomes and wellbeing of their communities.

"We're privileged to work with such an ambitious and committed organisation and, as a North London resident, I’m looking forward to experiencing first-hand the impact of the project."
