Medi2data has bolstered its senior team with the appointment of Emma Gale, who brings over 15 years of professional health informatics experience to the team.
Emma will be responsible for the development and roll out of eMR Health Passport, which will allow patients to securely access and share their electronic GP medical records, patient reports and clinical correspondence with authorised third parties such as higher education institutions, insurers, solicitors and government agencies.
Built on Medi2data’s flagship eMR software and part- funded by Innovate UK Smart Grant Scheme, this game-changing app will free up time in GP practices across the UK, provide secure and fast access to patient data for authorised third parties and give patients greater control of their medical data.
On her appointment, Emma commented, “I’m delighted to be heading up a project with such potential. The health passport gives the patient ownership of their own medical records including clinical correspondence and diagnostic tests, the possibilities are endless. People with long term conditions will no longer have to repeat their story to several health professionals, individuals will have control over who has access to their data. This is what we have all been waiting for.“
“Medi2data works closely with the academics at Swansea University, which is where my informatics journey began. Since then I’ve worked around the world – most recently setting up EMR systems in the Falkland Islands and St. Helena – so it’s nice to be back where it all began.”
Richard Freeman, CEO of Medi2data said, “Emma has a solid background in deploying successful healthcare IT projects and we’re delighted to welcome her on the Medi2data team at this exciting stage of our growth.”
