SCR 1-click now available in Sonar and PharmOutcomes

June 24, 2019

Pharmacists and technicians can now access vital patient information quickly through a new Summary Care Record (SCR) 1-click feature that is available in the PharmOutcomes and Sonar systems.

The 1-click function allows pharmacy professionals logged in with their Smartcard to click straight through to a selected patient’s SCR whilst using PharmOutcomes or Sonar, without having to log in separately and complete a manual search by entering an NHS number.

This can help SCR to be used as part of providing pharmacy services such as NUMSAS and the Digital Minor Illness Referral Service.

Having access to a patient’s Summary Care Record speeds up care and reduces the need for phone calls to GP practices, delays to care and the need for referrals to other services, particularly out-of-hours.

PSNC and the Community Pharmacy IT Group have encouraged all pharmacy system suppliers to similarly implement SCR 1-click functionality into their software.
