The Hampshire Health Record (HHR) is a local combined electronic health record. It brings together information in your health records from different parts of the NHS in Hampshire.
The local National Health Service (NHS) has many different computer systems holding health records. Because not all of these systems are connected to each other, information about your care from one system is not automatically available in the others.
The HHR is a joint project supported by Basingstoke and North Hampshire Foundation Trust, Hampshire Primary Care Trust, Portsmouth City Teaching Primary Care Trust, Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, Southampton City Primary Care Trust, Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust and Winchester and Eastleigh Hospital NHS Trust.
At present the HHR receives records from nearly two thirds of the GP practices within the three Primary care Trusts. The information that is sent only contains the codes of problems and diagnoses, drugs prescribed, clinical measurements and pathology results etc. Detailed comments are not included.
Data sent to the HHR from Southampton and Portsmouth Hospital Trusts includes blood test and other pathology results, X-Ray results and letters sent after Outpatient appointments or hospital admissions.
