ClearNet gets extended life

4th August 2006

Connecting for Health has extended its contract with healthcare IT supplier, McKesson, to provide its NHS-wide Clearing Service (NWCS) ClearNET, until 31 December 2006.

ClearNET is the NHS’s largest database of patient data containing over 223 million records. Following the end of the contract, the replacement NPfIT service, Secondary Uses Service (SUS), is expected to take over.

SUS will provide patient-based data for a range of uses relating to both direct clinical care, and additional areas including planning; commissioning; public health; clinical audit; benchmarking; performance improvement; research; and clinical governance.
