iatro selected to launch Patient Information Portal across Sunderland

Sunderland GP Alliance has been commissioned by the North East and North Cumbria NHS Integrated Care Board (ICB) to develop a Patient Information Portal.

Iatro was selected to build and implement the new portal, an ambitious ‘one stop shop’ web application where patients can access a range health advice, all at their fingertips.    

The Patient Information Portal gathers information from patients via online forms to recommend and signpost them to an appropriate service within the area. This includes referrals to social prescribing, musculoskeletal (MSK) and mental health. The portal also links to relevant GP practice websites so that patients can access digital services, like; appointment booking, online consultations and medication requests. 

A key part of the project is encouraging usage and adoption amongst patients across Sunderland. Iatro and Sunderland GP Alliance are working closely with the GP practices to promote the new portal.

“We have a lot of experience in improving patient adoption of digital tools through our work implementing GP practice websites and online consultation solutions, and look forward to working with Sunderland GP Alliance to ensure the Health Portal has the best impact possible with patients across Sunderland”.

Thomas Porteus, CEO at iatro
