System C signs up to new interoperability charter
2nd September 2015
System C today became one of the first signatories to techUK’s new Interoperability charter, a series of principles and commitments which recognise the importance of open standards and interoperability in the delivery of better integrated health and care.
The charter has been welcomed by NHS England as a major step forward in breaking down barriers between care settings and delivering significant service transformation.
Inderjit Singh, head of enterprise architecture at NHS England, said: "We support the Interoperability Charter and the need for suppliers to provide open interfaces within and across care settings, and therefore will be directing organisations starting to plan their blueprint for interoperability to the Charter for their supplier partners."
The Charter will also feature in a series of tools being developed by NHS England in conjunction with local and national organisations to support health and care professionals to make decisions on local information sharing solutions.
“System C is a major player in both the health and social care markets and thoroughly committed to the government’s vision of integrated care services”, said Dr Ian Denley, joint chief executive of System C.
“Interoperability and open systems are key components in our strategy of providing IT solutions which help our customers transform how health and social care is delivered.”
