E.D.S.M. Consent Form
The Electroinc Data Sharing Model
For Medical Records held on your practice clinical system (SystmOne)
What does it mean for the patient?
With the patient's permission, it allows those providing treatment to share the information held on the medical record with other services providing care to the patient.
Like other local SystmOne practices, from 2013 the way we share computerised clinical information changed. With effect from October 2015, your GP information will be automatically be made securely available to other professionals involved in your care. This is known as implied consent * Even though implied consent to share applies to your record, when you see another care professional such as a community nurse or hospital doctor, they still must ask for your consent to view the record (explicit consent). You can decline sharign your information at this point. If you are unconscious, for example in and emergency situation, a health professional may access your record without permission if it is deemed in your best interests to provide care.
(*) If you have previously opted-out of the edsm sharing model, your GP record will noit be made available.
IT PUTS THE PATIENT IN CONTROL OF WHO HAS ACCESS TO THEIR MEDICAL RECORD.
