The system is in place with a number of PCTs since its inception in 2000. Because the system is designed with the clinician in mind is that it is enthusiastically supported by the clinicians that use it. It has become a core component to the success of the clinics and the consultants, GPs and nurses, as well as the administrative staff, depend upon it to provide their services. With a wealth of reports providing detailed activity and audit data, the PCT relies just as heavily upon this system as the clinicians.
The Shared Patient Care System is now used in a wide range of specialties, including the disciplines with the Muscular-Skeletal area, ENT, Ophthalmology, Leg ulcer, Osteoporosis, Continence and Parkinson’s disease, Cardiology, Cardiac Monitoring and Chronic Pain.
