The south central region of England has gone live with a single child health information system to provide a comprehensive electronic record of over 906,000 children’s public health records.

The new CarePlus system from System C combines 11 different child health information services and workflows to create a unified child health information service covering children in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Bath and N. E. Somerset, Wiltshire, Swindon, Gloucestershire, Bristol, North Somerset, Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

Led by South, Central and West Commissioning Support Unit (SCW), the project included migrating data from five separate IT solutions to create a central database of 3.2 million records. Each stage of the project went live on time and to budget.

Sue Trinder, CHIS director SCW, said: “We had a complex brief to create a system that interfaces with multiple providers and provides access for health and social services. I’m delighted to see it come successfully to fruition.

“We are working with health and care professionals to ensure that they have access to comprehensive and accurate information about each child they care for.”
