EMIS and TPP work on data-sharing agreement

18th March 2013

Two GP Information Technology Companies, TIPP and EMIS, are in the process of working on a data-sharing project.


The agreement will allow GPs to share information on both companies' networks and has been described by the two parties as "momentous" and "groundbreaking". The two companies hold data for over 60 million patients. TPP chief executive Frank Hester said the agreement was a big move forward and added: "It’s fantastic that we can offer this level of integration to the NHS for free. This will transform the delivery of patient care across the NHS."
