Technical Details

Docman are fully committed to supporting the NHS Transfer of Care initiative and the emerging standards associated with the Clinical Documentation Architecture (FHIR) frameworks ready for when the principle GP suppliers can receive FHIR.

In the meantime we are working closely with NHS Digital to ensure our Docman GP product and our structured messaging platform Docman Hub are compliant for the transfer of structured messages between Primary and Secondary care organisations. Our solutions already comply with the current standards for sending structured messages and the standards for the Clinical Structure and Content of Patient Records.

Currently Docman Hub is designed to send fully structured CDA messages to GPs nationally and other healthcare settings to enable Docman hub customers to benefit from current national sending mechanisms to achieve digital ToC ambitions today.
