Focus on getting the basics right – transfers of care– in partnership with PRSB
Digital sharing of transfers of care information were mandated in 2016 but even today the system struggles to provide digital exchanges of patient information from the acute sector to general practice. This session examines what the barriers are to successful digital transfers of care information and how to address them.
