Salford Integrated Record improves care and promotes research such as the pioneering Salford Lung Study.
Shared care record
CareCentric* shared record integrates detailed information from acute hospitals, mental health and community organisations, GP practices and social care into a single digital care record.
This information is available to clinicians and care professionals across a care community - in real-time, at the point of care, on smartphones, desktops and tablets
CareCentric is fully interoperable and is specifically designed to build on investments the NHS and local government have already made in IT systems. We connect to all the major health and social care IT systems being used in the UK, including the leading GP systems. The software can be embedded in third party systems while other systems, such as PACS or EDMS, can also be called from within CareCentric.
CareCentric is the largest, most established integrated digital care record in the country, holding records on over 16m patients. We support safer, more joined up care by giving care professionals access to more accurate and consistent information across all services, in turn releasing more time to offer continuity of care for patients.
Benefits of CareCentric:

*CareCentric is powered by Graphnet, part of the System C & Graphnet Care Alliance.
CareCentric is set to link records from 151 GP practices, 2 acute trusts, 3 community and mental health trusts, 2 councils and 6 CCGs for 1m residents.
You just click on the CareCentric button embedded in our in-house clinical portal and 'bang' - you've suddenly got the GP in the room with you. It's something the clinicians have wanted for some considerable time because it gives them assurance and back-up. By bringing together GP, community and acute data they get a much more complete picture of patient's needs.
