EMIS WEB UPGRADE PROGRAMME - INFORMATION REGARDING OUR CLINICAL SYSTEM PROVIDER'S UPGRADE TO AMAZON WEB SERVICE:


Practice News: The Practice uses a system called EMIS Web to manage clinical information about your care and health.


This system is provided by a company called EMIS Health LTD who acts as a data processor on behalf of the Practice. EMIS Health LTD also uses a sub-processor which is Amazon Web Services (sub-processor) who act under written instruction from EMIS Health LTD to store the data. Under no circumstances is it technically possible for Amazon Web Services to access any information about you.

STATEMENT FROM EMIS WEB: 


Third party processors


In order to deliver the best possible service, the practice will share data (where required) with other NHS bodies such as other GP practices and hospitals. In addition the practice will use carefully selected third party service providers. When we use a third party service provider to process data on our behalf then we will always have an appropriate agreement in place to ensure that they keep the data secure, that they do not use or share information other than in accordance with our instructions and that they are operating appropriately. Examples of functions that may be carried out by third parties includes:



  • Companies that provide IT services & support, including our core clinical systems; systems which manage patient facing services (such as our website and service accessible through the same); data hosting service providers; systems which facilitate appointment bookings or electronic prescription services; document management services etc.

  • Delivery services (for example if we were to arrange for delivery of any medicines to you).

  • Payment providers (if for example you were paying for a prescription or a service such as travel vaccinations).
