The challenge organisations supplying these services have is the need to keep up pace with advancements in treatments and technology as it develops and as people’s needs change.
This all needs to balance with a focus on being efficient and providing value for money to taxpayers.
The Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) is a “network of networks” for organisations who provide health and social care services to communicate with each other, exchange data and access NHS core applications, enabling tighter collaboration in an efficient and secure way. It is a key stepping stone to digital transforming the patient experience.
It is a direct replacement for N3, with a robust process for migrating your old N3 connections to new HSCN connections, including IP addresses
But it’s not only about migrating services from the old N3 network. It’s also about allowing access to broader health and social care organisations, such as pharmacies or opticians who currently do not have N3 connectivity but need it to operate effectively. It also extends to local government, ambulance and police too.
Private sector organisations who work in the health and social care sector can get an HSCN connection too.
