Enhanced Data Sharing Model (eDSM) Patient Information
If you are a registered patient you will have an electronic medical record held on our secure clinical system, which is called SystmOne. A facility is now available whereby your record can be shared between clinicians and others, in different care settings, who are involved with your care. There are strict rules about sharing and you will be asked by each provider of care to consent to “sharing in” and “sharing out”. If you consent your care record held by your GP practice or medical service will be shared with other medical services involved in your care (such as district nursing, health visiting, physiotherapy, podiatry, Out of Hours (OOH) providers in our area, and Crawley Health Centre etc. You will get asked about “sharing in” and “sharing out” just once per provider. You have a choice to say yes or no and can change your mind at a later day too.

Please be aware that if you chose to opt out of eDSM, this does not opt you out of the care.data or the Summary Care Record (SCR), you must request that separately.
