A system designed and built by our people, for our people.
encompass is a Health and Social Care programme that will create a single digital care record for every citizen in Northern Ireland who receives health and social care. encompass aims to provide patients and service users with the safest, highest quality of care that is possible.
encompass will be in use across all Health and Social Care Trusts in Northern Ireland to create better experiences for patients, service users and staff.
encompass will give patients and service users the ability to view and update their health information online wherever and whenever they like. It will also make it easier for Health and Social Care staff to view important information about their patients and service users both in a clinical setting and while working in the community.
The encompass team is working closely with Epic on activities to put us in the best position to move forward. This gives encompass the flexibility to design and make decisions for the needs of patients, service users and staff.
