Connecting Care Summary (HDSI)

  • Connecting Care is a local, pioneering initiative to connect health and care records across the region.
  • The Connecting Care summary is included in the Bristol Health Data Source Inventory v0.6, a prototype dataset that describes a snapshot of local health and care related data in and around Bristol.
  • The Connecting Care data set changes regularly and the information held here is purely an indicative snapshot. 

The HDSI (v0.6) is a prototype partnership ‘information asset register’ (*1) drawn from local organisations during late 2016 and early 2017, and has been collated from the organisations that contribute to Bristol Health Partners (*2), selected partners in our local Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (*3) and key health informatics and research initiatives (*4). The HDSI contains no personal data.

The HDSI provides an overview of data sets, data systems and data sources on people’s health; wider determinants of health and some health service data.

Non exhaustive.
